A tremendous thank you to all of the students, families, and supporters who helped make CYSO’s 2017-2018 season our best yet! Over the past season, more than 600 CYSO students performed for more than 6,000 audience members and 8,000 CPS students, were raved about in the Chicago Tribune and featured on NBC Chicago, performed Gershwin classics to a sold-out crowd, interviewed musical royalty, made a conducting debut, played with superstar alums, debuted a new leadership-focused Chamber Orchestra, were nominated for a Grammy, performed at the orchestra industry’s national conference and at the state music educators gathering, presented a world premiere, were featured on NPR, in the National Youth Orchestra, and won nation-wide competitions.
We can’t wait to see what next season brings! Wishing all of our families a restful summer. We’ll see you in the fall!
