Conductor Edwin Outwater appreciates the CSO’s “go big” approach to its family offerings. “It’s one of the most collaborative facets of what they they do,” said Outwater, who has appeared regularly with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra since 2004. “They really put a lot of resources and energy and creativity into their family concerts.” For the March 17 program, titled "Let’s Explore!" Outwater and the CSO will team with Emily Graslie, chief curiosity correspondent for Chicago’s Field Museum. Read more at CSO Sounds & Stories
