Bruckner 8

8:00 PM
Saturday, April 25, 2015

Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony is imbued with mystical passions and aesthetic glories. It rises from a doom-laden opening to a third movement containing some of the noblest, most ecstatic music the composer ever created. Semyon Bychkov, one of today’s most esteemed conductors, guides us through Bruckner’s most epic symphony.

There will be no intermission for this performance.

Please be advised that the set-up for the NFL Draft will disrupt both CTA and normal traffic routes in the area of the Auditorium Theater. Starting April 21 certain streets will begin to close down for the event. Please allow for additional travel time to and from Symphony Center for your event. For more information, visit
