Kehrein Center for the Arts Grand Opening
On May 22, 2019 Catalyst team members and supporters formally opened the Sistema Ravinia Auditorium at the Kehrein Center for the Arts! The Sistema Ravinia Orchestra had a phenomenal performance (pictured below), and the event was attended by hundreds of supporters including Alderman Chris Taliferro. We would also like to offer a special thanks to Ravinia President and CEO Welz Kauffman, lyric soprano Michelle Areyzaga, and cellist Ifetayo Ali-Landing for gracing our stage with a memorable grand opening performance. As one attendee stated, "The Center is incredibly inspiring, but the students are even more inspiring!" We are grateful for our ten-year partnership with Ravinia festival and the numerous supporters who brought this dream to reality!
