Much gratitude and thanks to members of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago for visiting Northside Prep on Tuesday to perform and coach 11 student chamber groups in preparation for the 2016 IHSA Solo and Ensemble Competition.
Civic's resident string quartet and string quintet began the morning with a performance of works by Schubert and Dvorak. After a brief question and answer session, student chamber groups and their respective coaches proceeded into rehearsal sessions.
Thank you to James Hall, Coordinator of Civic Engagement Programs at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, for working with Northside Prep to provide this wonderful opportunity for the young musicians of Chamber Strings.
Here are a few pics from the day:
