A tradition in India, the all-night classical concerts are rarely held publicly in the United States. Visitors have the rare opportunity to hear the ragas (traditional scales or modes) as they were meant to be played during the early morning and late night hours, under the Tiffany stained glass dome of Preston Bradley Hall at the Chicago Cultural Center.
