Former home of Solti and Barenboim (currently under Muti), and known as one of the best in the world, the CSO does not disappoint. Depending on performance, shows can sell out quickly so book tickets early if you're planning a trip into Chicago .

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.

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.
