School concerts


A cat, dog and mouse all turn down the Little Red Hen’s requests for help planting wheat, grinding flour and baking bread — and are disappointed when the hen eats the delicious bread all by herself. Featuring delightful musical portraits of animals, this classic children’s tale explores the importance of working together as a community.

Produced and presented in partnership with Chicago Children’s Theatre. 

Free tickets and transportation are provided to Chicago Public Schools attending CSO for Kids School Concerts and Once Upon a Symphony. For more information, visit the School Concerts FAQ page.
