Ravinia Festival on MySpace

Created in March of 2006, Ravinia's MySpace profile has gathered thousands of friends from across the globe. Ravinia's Myspace webpage has been linked to many MySpace pages of artists that have been featured at the festival, including: Renee Fleming, Joshua Bell, Buddy Guy, Patti LuPone, Emerson String Quartet, Cheap Trick, Deborah Voigt, and Elvis Costello.

The MySpace service has provided Ravinia with access to millions of Rock & Roll bands, chamber music ensembles, and individual performing artists. Many users (there are currently 97 million) have discovered Ravinia through MySpace and utilized the opportunity to send promotional materials to the festival for review.

Special promotions, offered exclusively to MySpace members, have provided the opportunity to bring listeners to Ravinia for the first time to see performances by Lalah Hathaway, Blondie, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The MySpace webpage provides users with easy access to Ravinia's performance calendar and blog. MySpace users also have the ability to leave messages and comments regarding the festival and its performances.

The Ravinia MySpace page can be found at the following address:
