Free concerts by the Chicago Chamber Orchestra 2011-12
Can I tell you that the more I look for free events in the Chicago-area, the more I find? Most people know of the free concerts in Millennium Park or which street fests we can enter for free or for a low admission fee, which means most of us think of free events as summer-time events. However, there are a lot of free concerts and plays in the winter if you hunt around (or visit this site:).
I’ve never really attended many orchestras, but now that I know how many free concerts there are, it may be time to expand my horizons a bit.
One of Chicago’s non-profits that offers free concerts is the Chicago Chamber Orchestra. Every month or two, they hold a concert on Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. Locations vary, so don’t automatically go to the location of the last event.
