Clef Notes — June 2023

OC Members

Although the 2022/23 Season is coming to a close, June is still packed with OC flagship events and further opportunities to connect with OC members. Clear your calendar for the OC end-of-season party on June 16, and gather a group to enjoy the outdoors at summer festivals like Ravinia, the Joffrey for All Celebration and Concert for Chicago. Whether you can join us for one or all of our upcoming events, we look forward to seeing you!

June Member Spotlight: Eric Rubio

In our new spotlight segment, we'll feature a different OC member each month, starting with longtime member Eric Rubio. Eric has been an OC member for nearly 10 years, since his first season in 2013/14. He has stayed with the OC even after a move to Arlington, Virginia, where he works in arts and non-profit management. His favorite piece is Sibelius’ Symphony No. 2, and his favorite OC event was the Back to the Future Afterparty in 2016. Eric’s hottest take is that NYC is overrated (though he will be hearing the CSO at Carnegie Hall) — he would choose Chicago over NYC any day of the week! Thanks for the submission, Eric, and we hope to see you (virtually!) at an upcoming event.

Community Spotlight: Summer at Ravinia!

Ravinia, North America's oldest music festival, presents a large variety of diverse musical events throughout the summer. These concerts run the gamut from Yo-Yo Ma to John Legend to the annual summer residency of the nation's finest orchestra, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The 36-acre park is nestled in a gently wooded area that makes it an enchanting place to experience music.

This summer, Ravinia Chief Conductor Marin Alsop leads the CSO in seven dynamic programs, including the can’t-miss drama of Mozart’s The Magic Flute and a specially expanded presentation of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.
