Trumpeter and composer Marquis Hill is widely recognized as one of the preeminent voices on the instrument of his generation. Raised in Chicago’s Chatham neighborhood his introduction to music was made by taking up the drum kit in the fourth grade. However, after being inspired by a cousin his focus soon shifted to what was to become his primary instrument, the trumpet. A frequent participant in Ravinia programs, awards include winning such competitions as the International Trumpet Guild jazz competition (2012) and most recently the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Trumpet Competition (2014), widely regarded as the most prestigious in its field.

Pavilion opens at 6:30p. Bring a blanket and/or chairs and enjoy a picnic on the lawn. Beer, wine and other concessions will be available for sale. No outside alcoholic beverages permitted; concession stand available for ages 21+. Click here for more information.

Chicago Jazz Orchestra is a 17-piece premiere jazz ensemble that has garnered local, national and international recognition, and Conductor and Artistic Director Jeff Lindberg is recognized as one of the foremost transcribers in jazz. The orchestra’s repertoire draws upon Lindberg’s vast library including the works of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Dizzy Gillespie, Lionel Hampton, Benny Carter, Oliver Nelson and Ray Charles. Because CJO has its own transcriptions of the original recordings, much of the music in its concerts cannot be heard anywhere else.
