“Superb orchestra and guest artists”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

The Chicago Symphony is superb - technically amazing, and with Mutti - Italian heart is in it as well.
They have 1st rate artists as soloists and for Chamber music.
I also learned a lot in a relatively new series - Beyond the Score, with musicians playing, actors telling the story, and a video in the background showing the sights.

“Beautiful Venue”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

I didn't actually here the Chicago Symphony here, but the Chicago Philharmonic as part of the National Flute Association Convention. Great acoustics and in the lower balcony where I was sitting, the sight lines were great.

The free concert in the park was amazing! The composer of music for the TV series was conducting the orchestra whilst we watched fabulous images on huge screens. Awesome!
