Fodor's Review

Now home to the acclaimed Chicago Symphony Orchestra (CSO), this complex includes Orchestra Hall, built in 1904 under the supervision of Daniel Burnham. The Georgian building has a symmetrical facade of pink brick with limestone quoins, lintels, and other decorative elements. An interior renovation, completed in 1997, added a seating area that is behind and above the stage, allowing patrons a unique vantage point. Backstage tours ($10) are available by appointment for

groups of 10 or more, but the Chicago Architecture Foundation offers tours for individuals.
