This year's collaboration between the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago highlights the electro-acoustic fusion of composer and DJ Mason Bates's Music from Underground Spaces. Hubbard Street Dance Chicago's resident choreographer, Alejandro Cerrudo, has sculpted original choreography for Music from Underground Spaces through the chisel of footwork and the hammer of rhythm, with the dance company's masterful movers and shakers bringing the piece to life. Also on the program for the evening are performances of Manuel de Falla's "Three Dances," from El amor brujo, and Maurice Ravel's Mother Goose and La valse, with the orchestra led by conductor Carlos Kalmar. Get your Groupon for a night of magnificent music and movement.

About Chicago Symphony Orchestra
The Beatles have nothing on the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Over the course of its nearly 125-year history, the CSO has won 62 Grammy awards, performed the scores of award-winning films (such as Steven Spielberg's Lincoln), embarked on 39 overseas tours, and, just for good measure, added Yo-Yo Ma to its roster of performers. The renowned cellist was appointed the CSO's first Judson and Joyce Green Creative Consultant in 2010, helping to inspire the Chicago community through new initiatives and advocating for the power of music.
The themes of CSO's 100-some performances a year spring from absurdly creative conductors and virtuosic musicians. In addition to romps through the classical repertoire, audiences might find jazz tributes, films scored live, and the Beyond the Score series, which uses visual projections and even live actors to flesh out the stories behind the compositions on the program.
