This 11-day festival is spearheaded by the Chicago Symphony
Orchestra's director Riccardo Muti and creative consultant Yo-Yo
Ma. That's about as good as it gets when it comes to creative
pedigree, and the result is a celebration that is equal parts
education, entertainment and inspiration for a generation of future
musicians. All concerts are free and open to the public, though
seating may be limited, so call ahead. Festival highlights below;
