    Best time to visit: April - May. Summer = tourists. Unless you want to elbow people out of the way to get a photo of “the Bean.” we suggest Spring. Airfare/ hotels are affordable and you won’t freeze. Read more

    Orchestra Hall,CSO音乐厅历经沧桑,建成初期甚至用来作台球比赛的场所。交响音乐厅于12月14日举办了首场音乐会,由Ted Thomas担任指挥,音乐厅大门从此打开。1966年建筑师H.Weese负责监督自该音乐厅启用以来的首次重大维修工程。95年5月新音乐厅举行奠基仪式,翻新费用达1.2亿美元。97年10月4日,巴伦博伊指挥CSO为音乐厅再度开放举行音乐会,由多明戈担任男高音独唱。 Read more
