The Symphony Center is located almost across the street from the Art Museum. There are a variety of seats available for all performances. I would caution some about sitting in the upper sections. The aisles are very small and uncomfortable plus the steps are super steep. All the other seating is fine. Music is always superb and the acoustics are outstanding.

This is one of the worlds great orchestras and the performance I attended on 20 Dec. was no less than outstanding. If you enjoy 'classical' music and can afford the price of a ticket - do it!

A great privelige to enjoy one of the world's great orchestras but more, the audience were knowledgeable and were held in rapt attention before exploding with enthusiasm and gratitude at concert's completion. Ax was sensational and I have to say, this was a most memorable experience.

No words can do the Chicago Symphony Orchestra justice. Music is a special form of communication and these people have perfected it. Go. Enjoy. (Student tickets are available for most performances and the Civic Orchestra - the only official training orchestra affiliated with a major US Orchestra - is FREE!)

I have gone to the "Welcome Yule" for the past 6 years and thought that this year's production was the best ever. I recommend this show to put everyone in the holiday spirit. It is also a beautiful building and wonderfully decorated. One of my favorite places in the city.
