The Chicago Philharmonic believes in making great music accessible to everyone.
“Never in a million years would I think I’d get
the opportunity to play alongside professional
musicians (1st part no less!). Many thanks to
the Chicago Philharmonic for a wonderful night
of music in the park! The clarinet section was clearly the best.”
