The Chicago Staff Band's Sounds of the Seasons concert has become a staple of the Thanksgiving weekend over the past 101 years. This year's concert, which featured two special guests: The Chicago Symphony Orchestra's Mark Ridenour and the Central Territorial Staff Songsters, marked the 100th time this concert has occurred. This celebration had to be postponed for a year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, but was a fantastic night of music and worship. Not only was this concert the 100th anniversary concert, it also marked the first time that CTSS were heard in person in the group's history. It also marked the final time that the Chicago Staff Band was conducted by Dr. Harold Burgmayer as he retired the following February.
