Be delighted and inspired by this contemporary chamber music concert featuring music by living composers curated and performed by the Fellows of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, members of International Contemporary Ensemble and special guest Douglas Ewart. The program will be announced this spring.

The Civic Orchestra of Chicago prepares young professional musicians for lives in music. Civic members participate in rigorous orchestral training and perform free concerts in Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center and in communities across Greater Chicago. Through an array of experiences designed to build and diversify creative and professional skills, the Civic Fellowship program empowers participants to realize their full potential as artistically excellent, civically engaged, collaborative and entrepreneurial musicians.

Now in its third decade, the International Contemporary Ensemble is a multidisciplinary collective of musicians, digital media artists, producers, and educators committed to building and innovating collaborative environments in order to inspire audiences to reimagine how they experience contemporary music and sound. Under the leadership of composer and Artistic Director George Lewis, the Ensemble creates a mosaic musical ecosystem as “America’s foremost new-music group” (The New Yorker), honoring the diversity of human experience and expression by commissioning, developing, recording, and performing the works of living artists in “a mission worth following” (I Care If You Listen).

Perhaps best known as a composer, improviser, sculptor and maker of masks and instruments, Douglas R. Ewart is also an educator, lecturer, arts organization consultant and all-around visionary. In projects done in diverse media throughout an award-winning and widely acclaimed 40-year career, Ewart has woven his remarkably broad gifts into a single sensibility that encourages and celebrates — as an antidote to the divisions and compartmentalization afflicting modern life — the wholeness of individuals in culturally active communities.
