John and Dora Aalbregtse

What inspires your love of music?

We both grew up with music played daily in the house and with at least one parent who played an instrument and sang.

What initially drew you to the CSO?

When we moved to Chicago, one of the first things we did was to subscribe to the CSO. We bought four tickets to each of the performances and invited people we met to join us for a concert. It was a great way to enjoy spectacular performances and get to know new friends with similar interests.

Why do you feel it’s important to support the CSOA as a member of the Theodore Thomas Society?

We believe that the Orchestra is a treasure to be enhanced and preserved for future generations. The Theodore Thomas Society is a natural way to provide for the future of the Orchestra. Planned giving is an important component of our support for the CSO.
