Saturday, January 14, 2017

Mandolin virtuoso Chris Thile, musician Andrew Bird, folk singer Laura Marling and comedian Beth Stelling come together for a live broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion at Symphony Center. Enjoy the show's signature combination of comedy and spoken word interwoven with an array of musical performances. Join us for A Prairie Home Companion's only Chicago stop on its national tour celebrating Thile, the show's new host.

For personal reasons, Bon Iver has cancelled its forthcoming European tour set to begin in Paris on January 22, 2017, and end in London on February 20, 2017, in addition to Justin Vernon's scheduled appearance on A Prairie Home Companion on January 14, 2017.

Note: Due to speaker placement for this event, patrons in the Terrace will not experience the same high quality of sound as in other areas of Orchestra Hall.

When Chris Thile returns to Symphony Center, he will appear in a new guise: host of the long-running radio show “A Prairie Home Companion.” “I love this gig so much,” said Thile, who also is smitten with Orchestra Hall: “It’s one of my top 10 places to play music in the world.” Read more at CSO Sounds & Stories
