The orchestra encourages interested musicians to join us. There is no audition necessary. You should be comfortable playing our classical and light classical repertoire and have your own instrument.
Bring your instrument to one of our rehearsals and play, or just stop by to listen and get acquainted. The orchestra has also had vocalists and other soloists perform with them. Learn more about guest performances.
All orchestra members must also sign up for this program with the Chicago Park District. Signing up is free—just fill out this form.
The CWSO follows Chicago Park District guidelines, so masks and vaccines are not required. However, we encourage all players who are able to wear a mask while playing to continue to do so. Don’t hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or concerns in the comment box below.
