November 14, 2021 @ 7:00 pm

CYSO’s Symphony Orchestra presents their fall performance at Orchestra Hall on November 14 at 7:00 pm. 

A concert two years in the making, CYSO’s Symphony Orchestra makes their triumphant return to the Orchestra Hall stage on Sunday, November 14. As part of our commitment to performing new music and diversifying the classical music canon, CYSO is thrilled to present the Chicago premiere of Vivian Fung’s Trumpet Concerto performed by Gold Medal Global Music Award winner Mary Elizabeth Bowden, a 2000 CYSO alum.
