The Orion Ensemble was the Ensemble in Residence of the Chicago College of Performing Arts at Roosevelt University from 1996 to 2009.

The Ensemble is also dedicated to developing young musicians and began an ongoing residency in 2007 with OPUS, a summer chamber music camp for pre-college musicians from across metropolitan Chicago held at Benedictine University in Lisle, Illinois. Student chamber groups from OPUS have performed as part of Orion’s concerts at its venue in Geneva, giving these young musicians an inspiring opportunity to grow in their artistry.`
