The 2018/19 season marks the beginning of the 100th anniversary of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago. The League and the Women’s Board of the CSOA are partnering together with the Negaunee Music Institute Board to commemorate this milestone occasion with the Civic Centennial Celebration on Monday, April 1, 2019. Guest Artist Yo-Yo Ma, the Judson and Joyce Green Creative Consultant, joins the Civic Orchestra, conducted by Esa-Pekka Salonen, for a special performance of works by Salonen and Dvořák with both a pre-concert reception and post-concert dinner. All proceeds benefit the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, a signature program of The Negaunee Music Institute at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
The Civic Orchestra of Chicago’s Centennial Celebration Concert is generously sponsored by The Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation.
