Highland Park's Ravinia Festival just announced the MASSIVE lineup for its 2023 Summer Concert Series, and it includes TWO Carrie Underwood shows!

Ravinia's Summer Concert Series

Full disclosure, I have never been to a Ravinia Festival show before, but I hear about them all the time and am always amazed by the high caliber of entertainment they provide each year.

For those that don't know, Ravinia is a not-for-profit music festival that takes over Highland Park each summer and features over 100 shows ranging from jazz, blues, pop, classical, and even country music.
