About Us

Located at the Adams Street entrance to Symphony Center, The Symphony Store is a one-stop shop for outstanding gifts for all musicians. Since 1997, the Store has stocked incredible recordings, one-of-a-kind apparel and knick-knacks for music lovers.

Prized among the eclectic collection is the world's largest inventory of Chicago Symphony Orchestra recordings. From Bach to Bartók, Verdi to Varèse, the CSO has produced hundreds of commercial recordings, many of which are available here. The Symphony Store is the home of CSO Resound — the CSO's in-house record label — and is the exclusive retailer of the From the Archives series. The store also stocks recordings by Riccardo Muti featuring the world's leading orchestras and soloists.
