The book was our first salvo in celebrating Grant Park Music Festival’s 75th season. The second was the complete reinvention of the GPMF Web site as a cutting-edge fan-culture site and tourist magnet.
The site has just about everything you’d hope for: a popup streaming music player chock full of Grant Park Orchestra & Chorus recordings, a customizable playlist, video clips, photo galleries, interactive calendars, a Flash timeline, podcasts, maps of nearby attractions, and copious notes on season offerings and performers. We believe GrantParkMusicFestival.com will become one of the most hotly visited sites for Chicagoans and tourists seeking entertainment through the summer months. There’s plenty to discover on the site now, but keep returning to look for new features as they roll out.
