Meet the 2018/19 Civic Fellows!

The Civic Orchestra of Chicago is proud to announce the 2018/19 class of Civic Fellows. Throughout the season, in addition to playing alongside their colleagues in the Civic Orchestra, the fellows will perform chamber music in schools and communities across the city, design and implement their own community engagement projects, serve as leaders for creative projects inspired by the CSO’s Judson and Joyce Green Creative Consultant Yo-Yo Ma, and more.

Check this site regularly for fellows news, essays and reflections on past activity.
