Chicago Phil Chamber – String Quartet
Rain Date: Mon, 9/14
Let’s grab a date, some tasty picnic fixings and a comfortable camping chair to get out back at the North Shore Center for a delightful summer evening of romantic classical string quartet music by our friends at Chicago Philharmonic. The Romantic Strings program will be led by Robert Hanford.
Since the great Classical composer Joseph Haydn, a string quartet—two violins, viola and cello—stands as the vehicle for some of the greatest music ever written. Composers truly tested their compositional skills when writing chamber music for a string quartet comprised of instruments with all broadly similar sound characteristics and sonorities.

About Chicago Philharmonic
Through a community of musicians and community members, the Chicago Philharmonic Society wishes to excite, engage, and transform diverse audiences with the beauty and power of music.
The Chicago Philharmonic Society is a collaboration of nearly 200 of the highest-level classical musicians performing in the Chicago metropolitan area. Governed under a groundbreaking structure of musician leadership, the Society presents concerts at venues throughout the Chicago area that cover the full spectrum of symphonic music. The Society’s orchestra, known simply as the Chicago Philharmonic, has been called “one of the country’s finest symphonic orchestras” (Chicago Tribune), and its unique chamber music ensembles, which perform as Chicago Phil Chamber, draw from its vast pool of versatile musicians. The Society’s community engagement programs connect Chicago-area youth to classical music by providing access to symphonic concerts, mentorship from Chicago Philharmonic musicians, and performance opportunities.
Founded thirty years ago, the Chicago Philharmonic is known for providing symphonic support to international and national touring companies in all music genres and served as the official orchestra of the Joffrey Ballet for eight years. The Chicago Philharmonic also continues its twenty-five-year association with Ravinia Festival, is a resident company of the Harris Theater for Music and Dance, and performs at all the great concert halls of the Chicago and North Shore area, including Auditorium Theatre and Symphony Center. The Illinois Council of Orchestras has awarded the Chicago Philharmonic “Orchestra of the Year” (2018), “Programming of the Year” (2019), “Community Relations of the Year” (2019), and “Executive Director of the Year” (2020).
