Youth String Ensemble in Lincoln Square

Chicago Youth Orchestra

The children's orchestra in Lincoln Square is for the advancing intermediate youth string ensemble players ready to begin a string ensemble in Chicago. Being a member of this youth orchestra in Chicago will enhance note recognition and sight reading, provide experience with conductors and learning to be a part of an ensemble rather than a soloist, all while learning new and exciting repertoire. There is space for Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass and Harp in the ensemble. Young artists are required to have a working knowledge of their instrument and be able to efficiently read music. 

Weekly rehearsals are Thursday afternoons from 4:30 to 5:30 at Queen of Angels Parish Center, located at 4412 N. Western Avenue, Chicago, IL 60625

Fall Semester Dates:   September 5th - December 5th 
Performance: Dec. 8th, 2019 at 6:30 pm. Location TBD

There is no rehearsal on Oct. 31st and Nov. 28th

Participation is encouraged for the full year, but the season is broken up into two semesters.


$195 for Fall semester plus a $25 materials fee
