How the Classical Music World Killed Classical Music & What We Can Do to Revive It

Thursday, April 30, 7-8:30 PM • Community Room

The Chicago Philharmonic is the official orchestra of the Joffrey Ballet, performs at Ravinia, and also hosts a symphonic season at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall in Evanston.
