Sometimes the Best Part of the Season Arrives in Song

City Pleasures | December 11, 2023

Bringing the joys of superlative music to appreciative audiences for over 100 years, Chicago’s Symphony Center has long been a place to enjoy wonder. During a recent visit to the landmark venue, that awe was delivered through the voices of the young. Uniting Voices Chicago, formerly the Chicago Children’s Choir, boasts a long history as well.

Winter Glow, this year’s seasonal marquee performance for the enterprise, beautifully displayed the delight choral song can inspire. Much more than a display of technical acuity or individual talent, the program showcased the tempered power and majesty of the collective.
