Thank you for being a subscriber! We are very grateful to you for going to our concerts, and would be delighted to hear from you.
At Noon on December 22, 98.7WFMT will broadcast a baroque concerto from our Summer Festival on Music in Chicago hosted by Lisa Flynn - see below for details!
Camerata Chicago has had a very successful year performing no less than 5 marvelous series:
- January: A wonderful Mozart Symphony 25 with Joffrey Ballet Academy at the Wheaton College Artist Series.
- April: The Rising Star Series with Sun Chang performing the Mozart Piano Concerto 27 with Dr. Daniel Sommerville conducting.
- July: A Summer Festival of Baroque Concerti with Camerata Chicago Professional and soloist Ellen Maloney and four other exceptional young musicians who are choosing careers in music.
- October: The Vivaldi Four Seasons performed by Amelia Piscitelli, with Steve Robinson of WFMT fame narrating the poetry for Sweetest Day.
- November: two fabulous Sacred Music Concerts performing the Bach Magnificat, Vivaldi Gloria and Handel Zadok the Priest - in Chicago with the Fourth Church Choral Society and in Wheaton with our new Camerata Chicago Choir.
We have performed 11 concerts, the highest ever in one year. In addition, the Academy orchestra goes from strength to strength culminating with the Vivaldi Four Seasons performed by Amelia Piscitelli last Saturday - part of our mission to engage young musicians and to inspire the next generation.
These concerts need very significant funding and we would like to ask you to consider making a tax deductible year-end donation. This will help Camerata Chicago provide world-class performances of amazing music and inspire concertgoers and more young musicians in 2018 - our fifteenth anniversary.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
