About the Camerata Chicago Academy

The Camerata Chicago Academy comprises two groups – the Academy Orchestra and the Junior Academy ensemble. They are all very talented young musicians who play at a very high level and have given much joy to audiences in the past.

The Academy Orchestra (the ‘senior academy’) is proud to play with Concert Master Amelia Piscitelli, the 17 year old violin virtuoso, who has recorded the Vivaldi Four Seasons Educational Project with the Camerata Chicago professional orchestra. The CD recording is available for purchase in our online store, and is due to be released world wide.

The Saturday December 7 concert is extremely child friendly, is approximately 1 hour long or so, and there is a cookie reception following the performance during which you can meet and mingle with the artists. It is always a lot of fun.

Adult tickets are only $15, children are free.

Bring friends and most of all bring your children and grand-children – and please order 16 & Under tickets even though they are free. Seeing and hearing other young musicians perform in this kind of forum can be an amazing inspiration for them.

Watch our collection of 15 excellent videos from the Academy Orchestra and Junior Academy Ensemble to see how excellent these musicians are – you will be amazed! See the Academy play the Bach Double Violin Concerto and watch the Junior Academy perform the Hornpipe from Handel’s Water Music and a Bach Minuet.
