CSO School Concerts are age-appropriate, engaging and educational performances that introduce students in grades K-8 to an orchestra and symphonic music. Often featuring actors, dancers and multimedia, these hour-long performances take place in historic Orchestra Hall located in the heart of Chicago’s Loop. In advance of the concert teachers receive online resources that help prepare their students for their field trip to Symphony Center.
Free tickets and transportation are provided to CPS schools attending CSO for Kids School Concerts and Once Upon a Symphony. For more information, visit the FAQ page foundhere.
Members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra brass section, featured on the CSO for Kids video “May There Always Be Sunshine,” offer quick descriptions of their respective instruments and the roles they play in the orchestra.
