The Chicago Philharmonic is a musician-governed not-for-profit organization founded 25 years ago by principals from the Lyric Opera of Chicago Orchestra. Today, the orchestra is a collaboration of over 200 of the highest-level classical musicians performing in the metropolitan Chicago area, and has consistently won accolades from music critics and audiences alike. The orchestra's symphonic concerts at Pick-Staiger Hall and Nichols Concert Hall cover the full spectrum of classical music, from the masters of Baroque to the composers of today. The Chicago Philharmonic is proud to serve as the official orchestra for the Joffrey Ballet and to have maintained a partnership with Ravinia Festival for 20 years. The orchestra has appeared at high profile Chicago venues including Symphony Center, Auditorium Theatre, Harris Theater and Chicago Theatre. They have performed with artists as diverse as Josh Groban, the Los Angeles Master Chorale, and the Houston Ballet, and have presented works as varied as Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto, John Adams' Gospel According to the Other Mary, and Stravinsky's Rite of Spring.
