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!
