We always go to the CSO when we are in Chicago. For an added treat, try sitting in the seats that are behind the orchestra. You get a new perspective... the sound blend is not ideal, but you can see the conductor's expressions and you are up close to the musicians.

What a full, lush sound this group makes! Seats in the first balcony are quite a treat, as you get a good view of the musicians. Pricey, but definitely top quality.

I can't get enough - this orchestra is superb, the best in the world. Under Maestro Muti's baton, the orchestra is perfectly balanced and the playing exquisite. Go hear history in the making.
