Just in: Students disrupt Chicago Symphony concertmain
Our Chicago Classical Review colleagues tell us that about 100 student protesters entered Symphony Center last night in an attempt to disrupt the Chicago Symphony Orchestra concert.
Some of the demonstrators managed to enter the hall. Small groups of protestors advanced to the front of the terrace seating behind the stage and attempted to unfurl banners, but these efforts were unsuccessful. One side of the banner on stage right fell down before being abandoned and removed, showing the names of Sam Zell and Governor Bruce Rauner.
Several patrons blocked the protestors actions on stage left, wrestling with them for control of their banner. Before it could be unfurled it was yanked down firmly to the stage by CSO trumpeter John Hagstrom.
