THE 20TH CONCERT

IN THE FALL

Countdown To Our 2020 Fall Concert

Please use a PC when viewing this webpage and the livestream.

This year has been like no other. 

The ongoing COVID-19 crisis urged the entire music industry, including MPO, to explore different and new ways of keeping our annual music making traditions alive. 

While we were deeply saddened by the third consecutive cancelling of our Chicago Symphony Center Concert for 2021, we were also greeted with great news, such as winning the 2019-2020 American Prize in Orchestral Performance!

Today's concert will include both our in-person as well as our virtual groups. Please enjoy the MPO's 20th Concert in the Fall, presented by the Midwest Fine Arts Society.

We are offering free admission this year as a way to showcase the talent of all of our students to people all around the world.

 

This program is being presented through our private funds. We kindly ask that you consider donating to our cause. Gifts of any size are greatly appreciated for today's program.
