The Chicago Sypmphony Orchestra is celebrating 125 years and I think it is important to support the Arts and so I have become a season ticket holder again for this season.
One of the perks of being a CSO season ticket holder is that you get one free ticket and last Thursday I heard one of the best performances in a while. Visiting Conductor Donald Runnicles and the CSO performed Britten- Sinfonia da requiem, OP.20 which I am sharing here in this post. Next came Richard Strauss - Death and Transfigoration, OP. 24 and the final piece was Elgar- Variations on an Original Theme.
Chicago is truly blessed to have such a renowed Symphony and I recommend that everyone should attend a concert and support the Symphony. You can always sit on the grass in Grant Park and listen to the free concerts throughout the summer.
