The Fox Valley Academy and Philharmonic Orchestras welcome musicians to perform with us for each concert cycle. Musicians that participate in the Fox Valley Academy and Philharmonic come from 18 surrounding Chicagoland communities.

Elementary, middle school, and high school musicians may audition for Youth Strings, or the Academy Orchestra.

Adults, college students, and highly talented high school students may audition for the Philharmonic to participate at the beginning of each concert cycle.

Auditions are not required for the Philharmonic’s Summer Symphony concert in June. Interested musicians simply attend our Sunday evening rehearsals to perform with the Philharmonic Orchestra.
