Seats need updating (not sure if they're keeping them around because of some special reason), but the CSO is amazing as always.

One of the "Big 5" symphony/orchestras in the U.S. The music hall is smaller, but the symphony is marvelous, and the sound quality within the space excellent. Definitely worth a visit - a must for Chicago.

Great performance and great staff. Went for a class project but turned it into date night and had a great time!

BEAUTIFUL and historic theater! Seats are old and need replacement to more comfortable and modern seats, but no obstructed views and the architecture is astounding! If you're in the Gallery, expect a long mountain climb to the top! (or you can cheat and take the elevator)

Very disciplined orchestra, but style and repertoire is a little too conservative for my taste.
