Offering spectacular literature and awesome performances, The Classical Symphony Orchestra and The Protégé Philharmonic present the finest advanced orchestral training with the widest range of repertoire available on a once-a-week rehearsal basis in the Chicago Area and are considered one of the best youth orchestra programs in the United States! Both orchestras are incredible opportunities for young players looking for intensive, regular orchestral experience at an extremely high level.

The Classical Symphony Orchestra & The Protégé Philharmonic Offer Artistic Excellence and Peerless High Quality Orchestral Training In A Challenging, Fun and Nurturing Environment!

Rehearsals are open to the public in Classical Symphony Hall, and we have performed in several beautiful concert halls throughout Chicago such as Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center, Preston Bradley Hall at The Chicago Cultural Center, the Grand Ballroom at Navy Pier,  and the Robin Bennett Theatre at William Jones College Prep High School with standing-room-only audiences at all of our concerts!  Our concerts are now performed in the beautiful Salme Harju Fine Arts Center Auditorium at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago.
