Once Upon a Symphony

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s popular Once Upon a Symphony series is coming to Hinsdale on April 12 & June 21!  You won’t want to miss these very special family events presented for the first time at The Community House.


Your imagination will be inspired by vivid storytelling, music that depicts characters and the action of the story, and props, costumes and imaged created by the Chicago Children’s Theater.  Sing, dance, and play with musicians from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra; you are a part of the performance, too!  Leave with beautiful memories and resources to continue the exploration at home.  Recommended for ages 3-5, but enjoyable for all children.
