6 School Partnerships CSO-Connect CPS High School Bands and Orchestras The Ensemble Program Partnerships with over forty schools throughout Greater Chicago expose young people to the extraordinary musicianship of the CSO, enhance students learning in music and across other core subjects and advocate for the importance of music education. The majority of school partners host CSO and Civic musicians for performances and bring participants to Symphony Center for CSO School Concerts. As a lead partner with Chicago Public Schools (CPS) and Ingenuity on the implementation of the Arts Education Plan, the Institute prioritizes engagement with schools and school districts where access to music education is limited. CSO-Connect partnerships support CPS teachers as they develop and implement arts-integrated curricula. Ten schools participate in these intensive partnerships which over the course of the season include several teacher workshops and in-school presentations by the Civic Fellows that feature a memorized performance of music the students will hear when they attend a CSO School Concert at Symphony Center. During the weeks that follow the school concert, students collaborate with the fellows to create original music and artwork that responds to the concert theme and grows out of the curriculum their teachers have developed. This work is showcased at a culminating event each spring. Western Suburbs As part of the CSOA s ongoing initiative to expand audiences in the Western Suburbs, the Institute partners with six middle and high schools in DuPage County that host a CSO chamber ensemble performance and master classes by CSO musicians. Groups of music students also attend open rehearsals at Symphony Center. New in 2018/19, the Institute has entered into partnership with five CPS high schools that have growing band and orchestra programs. Over the course of the season, each school will host CSO and Civic musicians for performances, sectionals and master classes, and attend open rehearsals at Symphony Center. For decades, chamber ensembles comprised of CSO musicians have given dozens of interactive performances annually in public, private and parochial schools throughout Chicago and in the suburbs. These performances, which serve as the foundation of the Institute s partnerships with schools, introduce students to instruments of the orchestra, core composers of the orchestral canon and popular new music as well. Approximately fifteen schools and social service organizations that receive ensemble visits are designated as Adventures in Music (AIM) partners, and in addition to hosting CSO musicians, they receive free tickets and transportation to CSO School and Family Concerts. AIM partnerships are coordinated by members of the League of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association.

10 Using music to bring solace, the Initiative for a More Peaceful Chicago empowers people through numerous projects that engage families who have lost loved ones to gun violence, incarcerated youth at Illinois Youth Centers and young parents who are supported by social service organizations. Songwriting Songwriting is at the heart of the Initiative. As a means of creative expression, catharsis, healing and reflection, the composition of original songs based on stories from one s life aids in the process of rehabilitation and gives voice to victims of trauma. With support from teaching artists Sara Lee and Rex Horan from the Irene Taylor Trust and composer Joshua Fink, participants craft lyrics, melodies and harmonies that become personalized pieces of music. Concerts for Peace Building community is a step toward creating peace. The CSOA s first-ever Concert for Peace led by Yo-Yo Ma at St. Sabina Church in June 2017 included musicians of the CSO, Civic Orchestra, St. Sabina Band and Chicago Children s Choir who together performed for an audience that hailed from over 150 zip codes from across the Chicago region. Since then, Concerts for Peace have become an annual tradition and feature music created during songwriting projects as well as classical music and jazz that embodies messages of peace, love and protest.

11 Notes for Peace In the winter of 2018 the Institute began working with Purpose Over Pain, a parent advocacy group based at St. Sabina Church that provides support services to families who have lost loved ones to gun violence. During each two-week residency, participants write songs with guidance from a team of teaching artists. The songs are showcased in a concert at the church and then professionally recorded at Chicago Recording Company. To honor the music created by the participants in Purpose Over Pain, the Institute collaborated with a team of web developers who volunteered their time to build Visit the website to hear dozens of songs that were written in memory of those who were murdered.

Each season, Maestro Muti visits an Illinois Youth Center to present an interactive recital alongside guest opera singers and CSO musicians. Additionally, site-specific and intensive projects are developed and implemented by the Institute in partnership with specialists in the field of youth development and juvenile justice. With participation by musicians of the CSO and Civic Orchestra, projects reach young people at centers in Chicago and Warrenville. Select participants take fieldtrips to Symphony Center for concerts and open rehearsals. Projects are presented in collaboration with The Irene Taylor Trust: Music in Prisons, Storycatchers Theatre and numerous guest teaching artists. Learn more and listen to participant work at The Lullaby Project Since 2014, the Negaunee Music Institute has partnered annually with social service organizations that support pregnant women, especially teen parents. During each songwriting project, parents craft lullabies that express love and hope and strengthen the bonds with their children. At the end of the songwriting sessions, participants receive a field recording that they can use in their daily interactions with their children. Each spring, the Institute produces a studio recording of select songs that feature professional singers and when possible the young parents accompanied by members of the CSO or Civic Orchestra. The Lullaby Project is a program of the Weill Music Institute at Carnegie Hall, and the CSO is one of thirty national partners in this work. In Chicago, the CSO s partners have included Chicago Childcare Society, SGA Youth & Family Services and Thresholds. Lullabies created in Chicago and around the world can be heard on SoundCloud. Music is a necessity of the spirit. It acts as a balm that allows us to remember, to heal and ultimately to grow. Riccardo Muti 21
