For 2017, Credo returns to the orchestral realm, presenting a tuition-free program for advanced pre-professional players.  A week of intensive rehearsals, sectionals, master classes, and community outreach will culminate in the presentation of Rossini’s Semiramide Overture and Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony at the Chicago Cultural Center.  Participants will be housed in the heart of Chicago, at Roosevelt University’s exciting new dorm.
