Chicago Symphony Orchestra

Riccardo Muti, Zell Music Director

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra returns to Krannert Center for its 34th magnificent performance in the fitting splendor of the Foellinger Great Hall. A cultural pride and joy of not only our state but also our nation, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra is consistently hailed as one of the greatest orchestras in the world. Riccardo Muti, the 10th music director of the CSO and one of today's most celebrated maestros, leads the orchestra in Mussorgsky's wildly atmospheric A Night on Bald Mountain, followed by Strauss' orchestral showpiece Don Juan. Bruckner's colossal Symphony No. 7 completes the program.

Mussorgsky: A Night on Bald Mountain
R. Strauss: Don Juan
Bruckner: Symphony No. 7 in E Major

Dinner Buffet

Before the performance, enjoy a special dinner buffet service at Intermezzo cafe. Select from slow-roasted, hand-carved prime rib or roast pork tenderloin with creamy dijon sauce for $14.95. You’ll receive red-skinned mashed potatoes, fresh steamed vegetables, and rolls with your entree. Service begins at 5:30pm and continues until 7:30pm.
