Chicago Solisti is comprised of musicians, students, artists, and teachers from the metropolitan Chicago area. They've performed individually across the country as soloists, orchestral and chamber musicians and hold degrees in performance, composition and music education from DePaul University, University of Michigan, Roosevelt University, Michigan State University, UT- Austin, Columbia College, Cleveland Institute of Music, Boston Conservatory and Cincinatti College Conservatory of Music. We're devoted to making great music and engaging our audiences in new and fun ways!

They want to devote ourselves to reaching out to young people and potential audience members who don't frequent classical music concerts often while maintaining the highest standard of performance and commitment to the music they perform! They hope to provide the cultural landscape of Chicago with creative and varied programming, in addition to presenting standard repertoire with fresh perspective.

The members of their ensemble realize the importance music education. Even though very new, the ensemble has already been engaged to give presentations and workshops at schools and programs in Illinois and Michigan. The presentations consist of short performances of chamber works, comprised of members of the ensemble and instrument demonstrations.

They are committed to supporting new works and plan to make contributions to the repertoire by presenting and actively commissioning pieces from contemporary composers.

 
They all believe in developing a meaningful relationship with the audiences that come to their concerts! Through social media and discussions at our concerts they hope to garner a connection to other musicians and music lovers on a personal level.
