CSO eyes adding concerts in DuPage County

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra has confirmed it is in serious discussions with DuPage County officials about possibly presenting a permanent, multi-week concert season there, pitched to west suburban patrons.

It’s too early to tell whether the added dates would come out of the orchestra’s downtown schedule at Orchestra Hall or from the CSO’s annual touring schedule, orchestra officials said.

Neither CSO Association nor DuPage County officials have said when a west suburban series would be implemented, or where the concerts would be held.

One potential site is the Arranmore Center for the Arts near Oswego on the DuPage/Will County border, where the orchestra has appeared in the past. Indoor as well as outdoor venues are under consideration, officials said.

The earliest a western-suburban series could be added to the CSO’s crowded schedule probably would be the 2013-14 season, since the 2012-13 concert schedule, announced in February, is already locked in place.
