We invite trick-or-treaters of all ages to a musical celebration of two hauntingly delightful October traditions—Halloween and Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). The Civic Orchestra of Chicago, along with special guests Sones de México, take the whole family on a fun journey from spooky tunes to festive Mexican music. Don your Halloween or Día de los Muertos costume and join fellow ghosts and ghouls for preconcert activities from 1:30–2:30.
Recommended for ages 5 and up.
