Program Notes

An original tribute concert celebrating the “most awarded female artist of all time” (Guinness World Records), Whitney Houston. This dynamic production celebrates the singer’s astounding musical legacy with new, original orchestrations of her sweeping catalog performed by Chicago Philharmonic. From her legendary Super Bowl XXV performance of “The Star Spangled Banner” to timeless hits “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” “Higher Love,” “I Will Always Love You,” and “How Will I Know,” among many others, audiences will be immersed in the world of Whitney as the evening weaves through her iconic songbook, film performances, intimate home videos, and rare never-before-seen photos and footage.

“We are thrilled to debut The Voice of Whitney at the Ravinia Festival. This venue is steeped in great music, history, and culture,” says Pat Houston, Executor of The Estate of Whitney E. Houston, about the inspiration behind the landmark project. “Whitney would have been excited to have her music performed with the acclaimed Chicago Philharmonic. Whitney loved the Chicago metropolitan area; it held a special place in her heart throughout her career. This concert event will be a perfect setting to further demonstrate Whitney’s virtuosity as a world-class artist. More importantly, her voice will continue to spread love and joy throughout the world.”

This official and authorized production is a collaboration between Pat Houston and the Estate of Whitney Houston, Park Avenue Artists, and Primary Wave Mus
