Founded during the 1919-20 season, the Civic Orchestra of Chicago has trained thousands of the nation’s finest emerging professional musicians while presenting free concerts at Symphony Center and in schools and other neighborhood venues throughout Greater Chicago. It is the only training orchestra of its kind affiliated with a major American orchestra. In April 2018, the Civic Orchestra was led by Erina Yashima, winner of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s Sir Georg Solti Conducting Apprenticeship, in music of Rachmaninoff.
