Symphony Center - Review

A feast for the eyes and ears, the Chicago Symphony is always family friendly. It’s small, and intimate, and the acoustics are wonderful. Patron after patron has talked about how it feels that the performance solely is for his or her benefit. This isn’t just Chicago’s treasure, but one that belongs to the world. If you want, you can just walk around the parks nearby, and still be able to soak in the music. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Chicago itinerary 4 days.

Symphony Center, Chicago Reviews

  • Anything you pretty much see at the CSO will be top notch. My wife and went to see John Williams and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra perform many of his works from the Star Wars Collection. Nothing beats live music! The acoustics in Symphony Center are great. Definitely a music see when coming to Chicago!

  • Sounded great last night. No matter where you sit in hall, you still have great views and the acoustics are outstanding. I HIGHLY encourage anyone who lives in Chicago or is visiting to go here and enjoy this absolutely outstanding ensemble.

  • What is great about this place is the CSO. And the history. Honestly though, the hall is a little long In the tooth. If you ever hear the CSO in another venue you’ll hear the difference. But they still sound great here. Sound quality on the back of main floor is so so. Once you get under the balcony the sound can get muted and flat. The seats behind the stage are pretty cool if you have a good conductor, but the sound is a little off as half the musicians are facing away from you. Lower balcony is best, but sound quality in the cheap seats is actually quite good.

  • Beautiful venue, this particular concert should have had more variety. That much modern Russian music is a little hard on the musical sensibilities!

  • A classic Chicago musical staple. Great, if aging, venue. Beautiful music performed by the best classical musicians in the city.
