Take Me Out to the Symphony | Concerts for Kids

Take Me Out To The Symphony! Experience the All-Star line-up of your Illinois Symphony Orchestra at our Concerts for Kids, led by conductor Jacobsen Woollen. We'll race around the track with the William Tell Overture, stretch it out in the 7th inning with Take Me Out to the Ballgame and learn the true meaning of sportsmanship with an athletic version of Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. 

Wear your favorite team's gear and come root, root, root for your home orchestra!
