The Negaunee Music Institute, the League, and the Women’s Board of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association present a very special evening celebrating the centennial season of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago on Monday, April 1, 2019, at Symphony Center.

Featuring Yo-Yo Ma and Esa-Pekka Salonen

Founded in 1919 by Frederick Stock, second music director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the Civic Orchestra of Chicago is the nation’s premier orchestral training program for emerging professional musicians. Benefiting from a unique alliance with the world-renowned Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Civic members refine their musicianship under the guidance of CSO musicians, CSO Zell Music Director Riccardo Muti, Judson and Joyce Green Creative Consultant Yo-Yo Ma, and numerous guest artists who visit Symphony Center each year. As they refine their musicianship, Civic members perform free concerts for nearly 20,000 people each season, mentor young musicians, and engage with diverse communities across Chicago.
