I have been waiting to see this for 2 years!
Ever since Joanna Newsom's Ys came out in 2006, I've been waiting for her to come to Chicago and play with an orchestra. I did get to see her at the Logan Square Auditorium play Ys in its entirety adapted for her Ys Street Band, but it would still be great to hear it live in all its orchestral glory. Well, now we can see her play with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at the Symphony Center on August 22; as well as a show with just the band (and presumably Milk-Eyed Mender songs and . . . new stuff?).
The show isn't yet posted on the CSO website, but hopefully tickets will be available soon.
