Designed for children ages 3-5, concert is based on the African
folk tale Abiyoyo, incorporating a performance by a small ensemble
of CSO musicians and a storyteller with video projections, costumes
and props that give young children a playful introduction to music.
Preconcert activities begin 45 minutes before each concert (9:15
and 11:00 a.m., respectively). Once Upon a Symphony is presented in
collaboration with the Chicago Children's Theatre.
