Recognized as one of Chicago’s finest chamber music groups, the Orion Ensemble has been performing since 1992. With the possibilities inherent in its unique combination of instruments — piano, string trio and clarinet — Orion offers exciting interpretations of standard repertoire, introduces audiences to rarely performed masterpieces, and inspires composers with commissions for new works. The ensemble opened its 2018/29 season with the program “Vienna, City of My Dreams,” featuring music of Mozart, Schubert, and Strauss.
