Lincolnwood Chamber Orchestra
The Lincolnwood Chamber Orchestra has been performing for over 25 years, and appears regularly at the Copernicus Center. Comprised of some of Chicago’s finest freelance musicians, it is flexible in its repertoire and composition, enabling it to participate in a wide range of programing and community outreach. The LCO was named “Chamber Ensemble of the Year 2000” by the Illinois Council of Orchestras, and has been acknowledged by Chicago Mayors Richard Daley and Rahm Emanuel, Vice President Joseph Biden, and foreign Consulates in Chicago for its music making and programs of cultural exchange. Highlights of the orchestra’s history include performances at Chicago’s Harris Theater, North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, Chicago Cultural Center, Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center, Chicago Islamic College, numerous concerts in collaboration with the Village of Lincolnwood, and the recent Sir Georg Solti Memorial Festival at the Copernicus Center. Renowned artists who have appeared as soloist with the LCO include William Warfield, Lukas Foss, Albert Igolnikov, John Bruce Yeh, Charles Pikler, Wendy Warner, and David Schrader
Chicago Chopin Society
Frederick Chopin is regarded as one of the greatest influences that pulsated beauty, life and triumph into the Polish people. Known as the poet of the piano, he put into notes that which could not be expressed into words: the sentiments of a great nation recounted graciously by a grand soul. Chopin remains a constant source of pride and inspiration for Poles around the globe, from Warsaw to Chicago.
It is this very inspiration that led acclaimed Polish composer Jarosław Gołembiowski to pursue establishing a venue in which Polish musicians could be celebrated and given a chance to build blossoming careers. A graduate of the Karol Lipinski Academy of Music in Wroclaw, and Frederik Chopin Music University in Warsaw, Poland, Gołembiowski founded the Chicago Chopin Society, an organization with a mission to actively support and promote Polish composers, artists, and artistic organizations. Now celebrating over a decade, the Chicago Chopin Society has already left its mark on the Chicago, with years of beautifully dignified concerts and festivals
