Our Mission

The Orion Ensemble is a nationally recognized and highly acclaimed group of five core musicians dedicated to performing a broad repertoire of chamber music at the highest level. The Ensemble brings world-class concerts to a varied, growing audience in Chicago and to audiences across the nation. Orion is committed to the development of young artists through its summer chamber music program with OPUS and to outreach initiatives and educational master classes.

Orion performs in a variety of venues, and strives to reach a wide range of audience members, from the seasoned music-lover to those who have never had an opportunity to experience chamber music.

The Orion Ensemble is supported in part by grants from the Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation,
the John R. Halligan Charitable Fund, the Farny R. Wurlitzer Foundation Fund,
and generous donations from our dedicated patrons.
