You can get CD's here (or nearby), which are nice to listen to while driving around, instead of the news, which is not really news most of the time anyway. NOW, if you happen to like music, some of the best is generated here by the CSO. If your wife likes music, but you do not, it is good stuff to sleep by, and then she owes you one and you can thereafter drag her to the Museum of Science and Industry, for example. More about that elsewhere among these reviews.

This is a yearly event for us, a present to ourselves which never fails to disappoint. This concert features, the symphony, dancing,
Skits and audience participation with the chorus in the singing of Christmas carols. A Joyous Occasion

If you pass through chicago and are a music buff or simply enjoy classical music every once in awhile - you must grab tickets for the CSO.

Having attended many concerts in many different venuesm this is one of my favorite! No matter where you sit, you will have a great view and even better sound. The space is very vertical in comparison to Symphony Hall in Boston, which leads to better visuals and audio (in my opinion).

I would defintiely recommend you catch a performance of the CSO or Civic if possible!

We attended the Yuletide program with the Chicago Lyric Opera Chorus. What a night! Beautiful music by both the symphony and chorus. This may be an annual event for us.

We are Chicago Symphony fans, and go a couple of times per year. Orchestra Hall has excellent acoustics, and even the gallery seats on the sixth floor have excellent sound.
