Countdown to a CMSO Century: Four to Go

Schumann greatly admired this lesser known symphony of Beethoven’s that is dramatic, yet playful and witty. Schumann’s symphony also has great depth and joy.

CHICAGO, Ill. — Members of the Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra performed today for Illinois Secretary of State Jesse White at the fifth “Wave Away the Waiting” health fair at the James R. Thompson Center.

“Wave Away the Waiting” is hosted annually by Life Goes On, Secretary White’s campaign to strengthen the Illinois Organ/Tissue Donor Registry during National Minority Donor Awareness Week. This is the third time that the CMSO has partnered with Life Goes On.

The group says nearly 5000 minorities in Illinois are waiting right now for a life-saving transplant. While six million people in Illinois are already registered as organ/tissue donors, even more minorities are needed to meet the demand.

The Chicago Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra is proud to partner with organizations like Life Goes On as part of our ongoing community engagement campaigns. If your organization would like to partner with us, send us a message today.
