Ravinia is making a special offer to Lyric Opera Newsletter readers through Sept. 20, 2015: Purchase a 10-punch pass for only $70 with promo code LYRIC. That makes reserved seats only $7 each. The series, beginning Oct. 24, is a microcosm of Ravinia’s great musical variety, all in the intimate, 450-seat Bennett Gordon Hall.

The series will feature pianist David Kadouch (Oct. 24); Chicago a cappella, exploring the Jewish roots of Broadway (Nov. 14); holiday programs with The Singers (two performances Dec. 4), Boston Brass (two performances Dec. 11), and Ruth Page Civic Ballet (two performances Dec. 13); the Cavatina Duo, giving the world premiere of their “Sephardic Journey” project with the Avalon String Quartet (March 12); Fifth House Ensemble (April 2); Musicians from Ravinia’s Steans Music Institute (April 8); the Ravinia Jazz Mentors (April 9); and violinist Yossif Ivanov with pianist Marta Aznavoorian (April 30).
