Ravinia Festival Gala 2011

I just got back from Chicago where I spent the last few days. I was there to photograph the Ravinia Festival Gala Benefit.
It was amazing. Hot as can be but luckily no rain, over 800 people came in black tie to hear the program that celebrated the music of George Gershwin.
David Alan Miller lead the Chicago Symphony Orchestra while Kelli O’Hara, Brian Stokes Mitchell and Sylvia McNair added the vocals and Kevin Cole played the piano.
It took about 2 minutes for the men to take off their jackets after they walked in.
The tent looked fabulous and as soon as the concert was over everyone entered and took their seats for the dinner to follow.
It is always great when the performers come to the tent. They were all very gracious about being photographed.
