As a free service, the League of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association offers the assistance of a trained volunteer Docent to help prepare your students for their CSO concert. Our docents prefer to speak to groups of approximately 30, repeating the material if you have a larger number of students. Presentations last about 40 minutes, although they can be adjusted to fit your class period. Among subjects covered are: the music to be performed at the concert, instruments of the orchestra, and the concert experience. If a Docent is available, he or she will call approximately 3-4 weeks prior to the concert to make arrangements. Questions? Please call 312-294-3160 or email
