Civic Orchestra of Chicago is the pre-professional training orchestra of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. It provides promising career-bound musicians a unique access to the resources and musicians of the CSO as well as some of today's most sought-after conductors including Music Director Riccardo Muti. The Civic gives critically acclaimed performances in Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center, and in other parts of the metropolitan area; its members also give chamber concerts, and all these performances are free of charge to the greater Chicago community.
