Plan the Perfect Chicago Date Night at the Symphony

A date night in Chicago can take many forms: strolling along the Magnificent Mile, enjoying cocktails and jazz at one of the world-famous haunts, or having a meal at one of the five-star restaurants. Whatever your tastes, Chicago can offer you the atmosphere to match it.

One destination in the Windy City that has always been a favorite centerpiece for romantic date nights is the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, which is one of the “Big Five” orchestras in the United States.

If you’re looking to plan a fall date night in Chicago, for an anniversary or another special occasion, the Orchestra is a great option to keep in mind.

Here are 5 incredible events on the calendar at the Chicago Symphony this fall.

Concert for Chicago

September 18, 2015

6:30 P.M.


In celebration of the CSO’s 125th anniversary, Symphony Director Riccardo Muti and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra will offer this free concert, open to the public.

Spend the evening being regaled with great works from Beethoven and Mahler, featuring Leonore Overture No. 3 and Symphony No. 1, respectively.

Muti Conducts Ravel’s Bolero

September 24, 2015

8 P.M.

Ticket Prices Vary By Seat Selection

Take a trip to Latin America wth this illustrious program, featuring the work of renowned French harpist, Xavier de Maistre. In addition to the Latin American flavors, there will be Mediterranean influences in the program as well, in the harp concerto as well as in Symphony Director Riccardo Muti’s masterful familiarity with the piece and its nuances.

This show is the perfect centerpiece to a romantic evening out in Chicago, which, combined with the temperatures of early fall, could prove one of your most memorable dates yet.

Muti and Andsnes

October 1, 2015

8 P.M.

Ticket Prices Vary By Seat Selection

Head to the Symphony on the first night of October for a veritable selection of some of the best pieces in classical music, including the delicate melancholy of Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20, and Prokofiev’s aggressive Scythian Suite.

You will also enjoy works by Beethoven and Hindemith, with performances by the beloved Chicago staple, Leif Ove Andsnes.

Polini Plays Chopin

October 4, 2015

3 P.M.

Ticket Prices Vary By Seat Selection

If you’re a lover of Chopin’s legendary piano concertos and solo piano pieces, you must get tickets to Polini Plays Chopin, set for October 4. Maurizio Polini is one of the world’s most celebrated pianists, and will bring his expertise to works by both Chopin and Schumann.

This show is perfect for those of you who want more of a “date afternoon” instead of a date-night, as the curtain is raised at 3 p.m. instead of evening.

If you and your date are more interested in interpretations of contemporary music, consider getting tickets the Bad Plus Jonathan Redman. The Bad has gained fame in recent years for covering the music of bands such as Nirvana and disco legends ABBA.
