Beautiful architecture Came here for a reception and had a great time on the 9th floor Great acoustics and lighting Opulence at its best
The Chicago Symphony is amazing and if you are here on business or for a long weekend try to get tickets to a performance. There is usually a guest soloist and wonderful music.
This theater is a feast for the eyes and ears. The building is beautiful and the CSO is a truly great symphony orchestra. Programming varies significantly between family programs, and other music.

We were pleasantly surprised - we expected great music which we got but the teaching that went along with it was really outstanding. Both the conductor and the singer were able to guide the children through the inspiration for certain pieces, the... More
We came up from St. Louis (which also have a first-rate orchestra) to see the Britten "War Requiem" conducted by Charles Dutoit. When I learned my press seats were in the balcony I was glad I had brought my opera glasses-until we took our seats and I realized that the balcony at Orchestra Hall is far closer to the stage...
