Symphony No. 6, Tchaikovsky

Tchaikovsky Spectacular

11:00 AM
Saturday, May 2, 2015

Experience all of the feelings Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky expressed through his music—triumph, sadness, humor, tragedy, love and more! Edwin Outwater, the CSO and guest dancers introduce you to the spectacular sounds of one of the greatest composers of all time.

Each performance is preceded by a series of educational preconcert activities, including performances by students from local community music schools, composition and conducting activities led by musicians from the Civic Orchestra of Chicago and more. We invite you to arrive at Symphony Center one hour before each performance for these activities.

Recommended for ages 5 and up.
