Our concerts are held in Concordia University‘s Chapel in River Forest, IL. Free parking is located at (approximately) 1124 N. Bonnie Brae Place (one block south of Division St and one block west of Harlem Ave).  Exit the parking structure by the elevators.  Turn right and stay on the center path and you will see Kretzmann Hall.  
The Chapel is located at the far right end of Kretzmann Hall.  

Seating starts at 3:30 PM and the concert starts at 4 PM. 

There is a preconcert conversation with Board President David Leehey at 3 PM if you would like to learn more about the pieces we are performing that day.

Our will-call and ticket booth is right inside the door to Kretzmann Hall.


The entire orchestra has shown proof of COVID-19 vaccination. We are also asking our audience members to show proof of vaccination when purchasing tickets. As of now, we (and Concordia University) are requiring our audience and orchestra to wear masks at our concerts. We hope you appreciate our sincere effort to keep us all safe.  This year, tickets are not transferrable. There are a few ways to show us your C-19 vaccination card: upload it when you purchase your ticket online, email a copy to TheSymphonyOPRF@gmail.com, or mail it in with your check. When purchasing tickets at the door, you will need to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination either with your card on a picture of it on your phone.

All ticket purchasers will also receive a link to view the concert at home the week after the actual concert.

On October 24, we belatedly CELEBRATED BEETHOVEN’s 250th birthday. Mio Nakamura performed his Piano Concerto No. 6 followed by his Symphony No.6 (Pastoral). Ms. Nakamura’s performance was underwritten by a grant from Emerging Artists Chicago.
