School concerts

School Concerts

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.

Due to ongoing health and safety concerns, there will be no CSO School Concerts in Fall 2021. Stay tuned for information on Winter and Spring 2022 concerts and details on how to reserve tickets.
