Looking into it, the performance is still the Chicagoland Pops, they are just renting the CSO space for this event.

I loved attending this the first time it came to chicag (well technically Rosemont)

Depending on the price, I'll go to both, Distant Worlds is totally worth hearing twice.

I'm planning on going to the 7 oclock showing after work since sundays are my work days and it gives me enough time to get ready and stuff and I might cosplay for this as well.

I went last December, and it was absolutely spellbinding. Gotta admit, I got a little misty eyed when they played Memoro de la Stono (g/f actually cried xD ) I hadn't been in a concert with orchestral elements since high school (and I was the one leading the Viola section at the time), and it inspired me to pick up a Viola again ...

Probably the best night I've ever had in recent memory. A nice evening, nice dinner, and a concert with the g/f. Even if it was during finals period during my first semester of law school, it was a welcome respite.

Anyone going to this and want to get tickets close or next to each other? I doubt any of my friends are going to it...so just wondered if anyone wants to go with me/next to me/close to me. I haven't purchased my ticket yet....but I'm getting around to it.

I'm so excited for this. It's so closeeee!! I'm going to both shows :DD

Does anyone know if there's any place close to eat around the Symphony Center? I'd rather not travel too far considering situations in Chicago currently.

7:30 had One-Winged Angel karaoke for a final. All the words. The opera was really good too. I always enjoy Distant Worlds.

Yeah, I was at both concerts. It was a blast! There were some repeats and they played music from FFX which none were played in the 2:30 show. It was funny when playing Vamo alla Flamenco, the guitarist started playing too late, and Arnie stopped the orchestra and started over. But yeah, OWA karaoke was fun; didn't think the audience was loud enough. :( Nobuo tried to get the crowd going lol

How many people knew the words anyway at the start? It did get louder as OWA went on though. Next time they come through it should be better. Also at the 2:20 show dancing mad was sooo worth it. Now if we could just get the chocobo race song from ff7.
