The Chicago Sinfonietta is "the orchestra of diversity," a professional symphony orchestra which forms unique cultural connections through the universal language of music. Since 1987 the Sinfonietta has presented an exciting blend of musical and artistic genres, mixing the Classical and Romantic repertoire with bold contemporary works. In its explorations of symphonic music the orchestra shatters traditional boundaries through its collaborations: exploring synergies between classical music, dance movement, live theater, and other (non-classical) musical styles. The Chicago Sinfonietta performs regularly at Wentz Concert Hall in Naperville, IL, and in world famous Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center in downtown Chicago.
