March's performances (on March 22 and 29) feature the story of
The Three Little Pigs, 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, an integral part of the Once Upon
a Symphony experience, 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.
