The Music Institute is proud to have seven of its students participating in the Chicago Youth in Music Festival, a biennial celebration of the achievements of young classical musicians from across Chicago and the world for an incredible journey of music-making and learning. The 2013 Festival takes place January 14–February 4.
As a leadership organization in the 2013 Chicago Youth in Music Festival, the Music Institute of Chicago will host a community event featuring music and discussion, free and open to the public, Saturday, February 2, 11 a.m.–12:30 p.m. at its Highland Park campus, the Highland Park Community House Ballroom, 1991 Sheridan Road.
Participating students will unlock their passions and hone their talents while tapping into a rich network of support from their peers. Students will gain valuable orchestral experience and develop an understanding of the values expressed by the CSO’s Citizen Musician initiative through workshop sessions and community events. All Festival events are offered free of charge and target diverse audiences across Chicagoland neighborhoods, including a special performance for Chicago Public Schools students.
