The Institute collaborates annually with St. Adalbert Parish to participate in the annual Via Crucis event. Additionally, the Institute works with neighborhood elementary and high schools — currently, St. Pius School, St. Procopius School, Ruiz School, Salazar School, Cooper Dual Language Academy and Benito Juarez Community Academy — to create high-quality educational music experiences for students, both in their schools and at Symphony Center. This is achieved through a series of interactional and educational chamber ensemble concerts at each school, and by providing free tickets and transportation to educational concerts at Symphony Center.
The CSO has had a presence in Pilsen/Little Village for over 10 years, through partnerships with prominent community-based organizations. Past collaborations have included Armonía, with the National Museum of Mexican Art, through which concerts and music classes were made available to city residents who might otherwise not be able to participate in the arts due to financial or geographic barriers, as well as Caminos a la Música with The Resurrection Project, a concert club that encouraged participants to attend concerts at Orchestra Hall as part of a familiar group.
