Summer in Chicago brings out the outdoorsman in all of us, and the city heads outside. What could be better on a crisp autumnal evening than a great concert under the stars? Fortunately for us, city mice, Chicago makes it easy to enjoy music outdoors. And my favorite (free!) summer concert venue is Jay Pritzker Pavillion in Millennium Park. Millennium Park is always on my radar for a variety of music. But I am very partial to classical concerts, when our fair city's exceptional symphony orchestra comes out to play.

Jay Pritzker Pavillion is located in Chicago's Millennium Park, nearby intersection of Randolph Street & Michigan Avenue.
Lyric Opera of Chicago is located in Civic Opera Building, 20 N. Upper Wacker, in the heart of Chicago Loop.
