Help us to continue making music in Chicago for another six decades!
This is the time to make a difference. The Chicago Chamber Orchestra Association is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, and your tax deductible donations will insure that the CCO maintains a strong presence in Chicago and beyond! Over the past six decades, America's oldest chamber orchestra has provided lasting memories, educational outreach, and enjoyment for listeners of all ages. It is with the generous contributions from our sponsors and underwriters that diverse, world-class musical performances will continue to take place each season. We invite you to join the CCO Association today and support a time-honored tradition of the Chicago Chamber Orchestra.
Naturally, the Chicago Chamber Orchestra musicians make the performance – but everyone, including the audience, plays an integral part in the experience.
The Chicago Chamber Orchestra is a neighbor and a community partner. We are passionate about chamber music performance and our mission to bring it to new audiences, both young and old alike. An investment in the CCO yields great returns: our members gain the personal satisfaction of knowing that you have contributed to the cultural enhancement of Chicago and the expansion of its civic pride.
The Chicago Chamber Orchestra is a fiscally responsible organization – all of our administrative services and many of our artistic services are donated, and a life of 63 years doesn’t lie! The orchestra continually relies on individual and corporate donations in order to conduct our high-quality chamber orchestra performances.

For over sixty years, Dieter Kober and the Chicago Chamber Orchestra have offered Chicago and the world the music that defines our cultural heritage. With your support the orchestra has been able to offer employment to talented musicians; give first performances of important new works by Chicago composers; as well as explore the worlds of Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven, and so many others.
The arts require three components: artists to provide the work, an audience to explore that work with the artists, and generous patrons to allow the work to continue. We are asking you to show your support for the CCO Association to help keep Dieter’s historic dream alive and healthy.
