The sounds of in-person classical music are returning to Symphony Center.

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association on Tuesday announced the first CSO concert performances with live audiences in attendance at Orchestra Hall, 220 S. Michigan, since the pandemic shutdown of all performing arts venues in March 2020.

 

The series of concerts, programmed in conjunction with maestro Riccardo Muti, will take place May 27-June 13 "and feature music for brass and percussion, string ensembles and orchestra," Tuesday's announcement said.
