Pritzker.JPGNext Monday, Millennium Park will be busting with Olympic spirit. The Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago are teaming up for a “Chicago Believes” fundraising event at Pritzker to support the 2016 Olympic bid. Hosted by Chicago 2016, the performance is part of a larger Olympic celebration that will include athletic demonstrations on the park’s Great Lawn, as well as a send-off to the Team USA members preparing to travel to Beijing.

Lawn seating for the CSO/HSDC performance will be free and open to the public, but those with deeper pockets will be shelling out $100 to $500 a pop to catch the performance from a pavilion seat.

Additionally, for anyone who might have some extra cash lying around, Hubbard is hosting a Twilight on the Rooftop event July 22; a $75 ticket includes wine tasting from Napa and Sonoma Valley wineries and Bossa Nova dance instruction from select HSDC dancers.

Chicago Believes: Millennium Park, 7/14, sport demonstrations begin at 4:30 p.m., performance scheduled for 8:00 p.m. Free/Special pricing for pavilion seating

Twilight on the Rooftop: 500 N. Kingsbury St., 7/22 7-10 p.m., $75-$150, R.S.V.P. by 7/15
