welcome to this is america in voa special english. this week -- making music under the sky. steve ember and faith lapidus tell you about two of america's best known open-air music parks.

(music)

it is late summer at ravinia park, in the american midwest, near chicago, illinois. the night is hot. but the wind cools the darkness. the chicago symphony orchestra is performing symphony number one by johannes brahms. thousands of people are in the park.

a husband and wife sit on the ground, far from where the music is coming. their two little boys look at picture books. when the sky becomes dark, the boys sit close to their parents. every so often, they all look up, beyond the trees, at the stars. the sound of the brahms music surrounds them.

(music)

as someone once said, "music played outside, especially after dark, is one of the great pleasures of summer." millions of americans attend outdoor concerts each summer. the concerts are performed at parks across the country.

the pavilion at ravinia park

some american music parks serve as the summer home for a city orchestra. at these parks, musicians may play well-known classical music, like the brahms symphony. or they may play folk music, jazz or popular music.
