School Concerts


Once Upon a Symphony programs combine vibrant music played by CSO musicians, storytelling and enchanting visuals for a playful concert experience.

The poor shoemaker and his wife have enough leather to make only one last pair of shoes. While the shoemaker sleeps, someone fashions the most perfect pair of shoes imaginable — and a delighted customer pays twice the asking price. Who could have done such marvelous work? And will the magic continue? We all need help at times, and when we receive it, we strengthen our connections with one another.

Note Location: Buntrock Hall at Symphony Center

Produced and presented in partnership with Chicago Children’s Theatre
