Sophisticated Chicago has embraced classical music since its earliest days, abounding with musical societies, orchestras, and choral unions even before European immigrant waves made the city an essential haven for professional musicians. With a stimulating variety of venues, weekly museum series, and great universities filled with rising talent – not to mention the superb Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the presence of some of the country’s most influential contemporary composers – Chicago is a superior example of a thriving American classical music scene. Enhanced by an extraordinary literary and theater tradition and by myriad delightful attractions such as an outstanding aquarium, quaint trolley tours, and impressive lake excursions, Chicago’s musical landscape invites concertgoers to experience the brilliant dynamic that makes musical life in the Windy City as vigorous as its namesake.
