A magical night at the Ravinia Festival. Always an honor to work with the Chicago Symphony…And…Idina Menzel, to do what you did only proves what a star you really are ! I love you !!!   Marvin.

The concert, featuring the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and renowned composer and conductor Marvin Hamlisch, who returned to the festival for the first time since 2001. It was Menzel’s first time performing with the CSO.

Tony Award-winner Menzel has been a powerhouse performer on Broadway for the past two decades, including her breakout performance as Maureen in “Rent” and Elphaba in “Wicked,” for which she won the Tony award for lead actress in a musical.



  1. Such an incredible delight to have listen to his music and repartee between these artists. Who could have known…how does anyone know their final moments, their final gifts and opportunities to leave a legacy. Really, only love and our memories last, that is all……….
