Thank you, CSO.

My four-year-old son and I had a fun visit this morning to the Creative Discovery Museum for a birthday party.  To our happy surprise, we ended the visit with a performance by the Chattanooga Symphony & Opera woodwind ensemble.  

It is magical to see children experience live music.

  Not only did this CSO performance help to get us in the Christmas spirit, but it reminded me what a wonderful treasure our city has in its symphony.  

The children of our region receive the gift of hearing and learning from these professional musicians. 

Thank you, CSO.
