Designed for children ages 3-5, this concert isbased 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 a.m., respectively). Once Upon a Symphony is
presented in collaboration with the Chicago Children's Theatre.
