It’s time to celebrate the holidays!

Ignite your holiday spirit with festive CSO at the Movies offerings, celebrated Chicago traditions and programs brimming with classic carols.

Revel in A Chanticleer Christmas amid the striking Gothic Revival architecture of Fourth Presbyterian Church. Relive John Hughes’ hilarious and heartwarming Home Alone with members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing the score live. Participate in a joyous musical celebration in a lavishly decorated Orchestra Hall at Merry, Merry Chicago! Experience the power of nearly 100 voices in magnificent harmony as Sir Andrew Davis leads the award-winning Chicago Symphony Chorus and four world-class soloists in Handel’s Messiah.

From festive fun for the entire family to soul-stirring concert experiences, make great music a part of your holiday season.
