Symphony Ball

Sep 24, 2022


Celebrate the start of a new season with Riccardo Muti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at Symphony Ball, an unforgettable, red-carpet evening complete with champagne toast. After opening with Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s lush — and recently rediscovered — Solemn Prelude, the CSO is joined by the formidable Yefim Bronfman in Mozart’s joyous Piano Concerto No. 22. In a soaring finale, the concert concludes with Tchaikovsky’s virtuosic and deeply moving love story, Francesca da Rimini. From first-time concertgoers to season subscribers, Symphony Ball is the perfect way for all to welcome a new year of music.
