Noche Navideña

Thank you for joining the CSO Latino Alliance at ¡Noche navideña! We had a delightful time sipping hot cocoa, listening to carols performed by the Campanella Children’s Choir and spending time together celebrating the holidays before the Chicago Symphony Orchestra matinee. It is heartwarming to see so many members gathering year after year, bringing new friends and keeping this tradition strong!
