Classical Music Series


The Chicago Ensemble performs a Classical Music Series annually, which includes five eclectic programs performed at the International House located at the University of Chicago’s prestigious campus and Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago located on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile.

At a Classical Music Series concert, you can expect to hear a captivating mix of famous masterpieces and rarely-heard gems from the Baroque Period — all performed by outstanding musicians from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Lyric Opera Orchestra, Chicago Sinfonietta, The Joffrey Ballet, and other world-renowned orchestras and ensembles.

The Chicago Ensemble’s Classical Music Series is also known for offering a warm and educational experience. You can expect to hear artistic director and founder, Gerald, Rizzer, tell the stories behind the music between each piece. Light hors d’oeuvres, wine, and other beverages are included with your ticket purchase and available to enjoy before the performance and at intermission.
