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 is presently recording the Vivaldi Four Seasons Educational Project with the Camerata Chicago professional orchestra. The CD recording will be released world wide and will be available in many schools in the Wheaton and West Chicago area.

Friday’s concert is extremely child friendly, is approximately 1 hour long, 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. Seeing and hearing other young musicians perform in this kind of forum can be an amazing inspiration for them.

Watch the videos to see how excellent these musicians are – you will be amazed!

Academy

Camerata Chicago Academy

2017-05-itasca-academy

The Camerata Chicago Academy was founded in 2014 and there are two orchestras comprising advanced students.

The Academy Orchestra: Advanced high-school students play as a string orchestra.

The Junior Academy: Students aged 8 – 12 playing as a small chamber ensemble.

Camerata Chicago Academy provides a marvelous opportunity for young musicians to perform in a professional atmosphere under the direction of an internationally known conductor, Drostan Hall, Camerata Chicago’s Music Director, who has 25 years of experience of training aspiring young musicians. The objective of the Academy orchestra is to achieve a very high level of music making to produce a disciplined and professional sound, allowing young musicians to learn to work together.

For ten years Maestro Hall conducted the Baroque Festival Orchestra, an accomplished training orchestra for students. Known for its high level, the orchestra garnered two invitations to perform on the WFMT radio show Introductions.

The Academy orchestra is very similar in size and scope to the BFO (see photo below). I invite you to listen to this live broadcast from WFMT’s Introductions of the BFO performing Frolicksome Finale from Benjamin Britten’s Simple Symphony. This broadcast illustrates the experience you will receive in the Camerata Chicago Academy.

The Academy Orchestra

Start Date: September 2018 and Saturdays in the Fall and Spring Semesters.

On occasion, sectional rehearsals will be coached by a member of Camerata Chicago. Additionally, solo opportunities will be given to the most outstanding members of the ensemble and outside guest artists may be invited to solo with the orchestra.
