Ravinia joins forces with Catalyst Circle Rock Charter School as part of the Renaissance Enrichment Program to give students a productive musical outlet. Students compose original songs, make and play instruments, and learn to use their feelings, hopes, and dreams as artistic inspiration.  


Recently, Ravinia Women's Board has sponsored the development of a symphony orchestra at Catalyst-Circle Rock.  Currently nearly 90 students are members of the largest forming African-American symphony orchestra in the country.  Teaching is done according to the El Sistema model birthed in the favelas of Venezuela that teaches not only music but also community building and social responsibility. 


We invite you to join us for a forum discussing El Sistema. It will be followed by performances from Ravinia CEO Welz Kauffman, the Chicago Arts Orchestra, and our very own Circle Rockets, the largest African-American student symphony in the country.

RSVP to Isaac Sinnett at or (847) 266-5134.
