The Adventures in Music program (AIM) provides far-reaching musical experiences for families and children who might not otherwise benefit from the CSO’s family programming.

A program of the League of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association, AIM partners with community-based organizations and schools throughout Chicago, offering hundreds of participants the opportunity to experience CSO Family Matinee concerts at Symphony Center. Preparation for these concert experiences begins at each partner site, where ensembles of CSO musicians and volunteer Docents introduce young listeners to elements of the performances they will attend. On concert days, participating families enjoy guided preconcert music-making activities.

This community partnership program intends to reduce barriers to participation, broaden each participant’s enjoyment and appreciation of music, and nurture a sense of connection to the CSO.

Adventures in Music is made possible in part by a generous gift from an anonymous donor and Baxter International Inc.
