Chicago Symphony Orchestra (CSO) brings together an ensemble of immensely talented musicians, conductors and guest artists from the United States and around the world. Every year the CSO performs more than 100 concerts, ranging from classics by Vivaldi, Mozart and Piazzolla to contemporary recitals inspired by scores from Harry Potter and Star Wars.
Performances are held in the Symphony Centre, a magnificent Georgian concert hall built in 1904. The plush red velvet seats and crystal chandeliers create a regal atmosphere. Arrive early to enjoy pre-concert dining at Opus Restaurant and Café.
