From October 27-30, 2015, the CSO embarked on a tour to Kansas City, Missouri, Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Dubbed by some the CSO Barbecue tour, 45 members of the Orchestra, including Maestro Muti, enjoyed dinner after the concert in Kansas City at Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue. On the last leg of the tour, in Chapel Hill, 23 members of the Orchestra enjoyed the wonderful Eastern North Carolina barbecue at Allen and Son. In addition, three concerts were played to very enthusiastic audiences!
