Chicago Symphony Orchestra Concert Tickets

Chicago Symphony Orchestra tickets will get you into the concerts of one of the most well-known symphonies in the world. Founded in 1891, the orchestra is one of the oldest in the U.S. and is now known as one of the “Big Five” orchestras in the country.

Theodore Thomas founded the orchestra at the invitation of a Chicago businessman, Charles Norman Fay. The “Chicago Orchestra” played its first concert at the Auditorium Theatre in Chicago.

The orchestra has also been directed by dozens of guest conductors, and Riccardo Muti has led the symphony since 2010.

The CSO’s studio recordings have earned over 60 Grammy Awards, including Classical Album of the Year, Best Classical Performance, and more. The orchestra’s first recordings were made in 1925. Along with studio recordings, the group has performed for movie soundtracks such as Lincoln (2012) and Fantasia.
