Family Series

The Family Series offers high-quality, engaging programming designed to cultivate Chicago’s next generation of arts lovers.

We are looking forward to welcoming you for our 20–21 series. Unfortunately, faced with uncertainty in the months ahead about the impact of COVID-19 — especially when it comes to artist travel and visas — we have made the difficult decision to postpone a number of performances. The Family Series performance listed below will be impacted by this change. We appreciate your patience as we work with the artists to finalize new dates during this time. 

The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center Albert and Wolfgang | October 17, 2020

We will continue to update this page as performance changes are confirmed. If you are an Exelon Family Series subscriber, you will be contacted via email. If you do not receive the email or have any other questions, please contact our box office at


  • Hour-long performances on Saturdays at 2PM

For our 2020-21 season, the April 17, 2021 performance of Manual Cinema’s The Magic City will be a sensory-friendly, relaxed performance, designed to offer a safe, welcoming, and judgement-free environment for audience members on the autism spectrum or with other sensory sensitivities. Support services and accommodations include moderate sound levels, a quiet play area, and social narratives to guide audience members in their visit. 

Single tickets will go on sale in the fall.
