Whom You Could Have Heard at Chicago’s Orchestra Hall in 1948-9.

Get a load of these names: conductors Monteux, Munch, Ormandy, Szell, Walter; soloists Schnabel, Stern, Rubinstein, Arrau, Francescatti, Heifetz, Hess, Kapell.

And get a load of these prices: from around $20 to $90 not for a ticket, but for the season.

I found this Chicago Symphony Orchestra leaflet for 25¢ in an antique store and had to buy it. Time to rev up the time machine.
