Have you attended a CSO concert before?

Yes I have. I enjoy the concerts at the Chicago Cultural Center or outdoor concerts the most.

What other classical music events have you attended in the last 18 months?

I have attended various pieces at the Minneapolis Orchestra Hall, including Vivaldi, Handel, and Bach. I'm also a fan of Tchaikovsky and have attended performances by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Do you/have you ever played an instrument?

Not yet but I hope to learn. Musical education is important in a holistic education.

How did you become interested in classical music?

I have grown to love Classical Music because of its deeply Catholic heritage. I'm familiar with chant and the natural progress of music has always had a deeply Catholic root in it. I wish to see this type of music again take hold in our culture.


I have grown to love Classical Music because of its deeply Catholic heritage. I'm originally from Joliet, lived in Minneapolis next to Orchestra Hall for a few years, and now am back in this general area.
