      FROM THE ARTISTS’ WEBSITE

      International Chamber Artists

      In 2006, a small group of musicians formed the International Chamber Artists. ICA has grown steadily and responsibly, bringing emerging artists and great music to Chicago. What started out as an idea among friends has grown to become one of the premier chamber music organizations in Chicago. ICA is a non-profit chamber music ensemble currently made up of 23 musicians. To create the audience of the future, ICA strives to present a wide variety of music during each season. ICA concerts at St. Gregory’s combine music education and performance in a unique and accessible way. ICA gives numerous concerts throughout the year at St. Gregory the Great Church in Andersonville, at the Chicago Cultural Center, at the Belden Stratford Hotel, at St. James Cathedral and on Chicago’s classical radio station 98.7 WFMT. ICA has performed for the Dame Myra Hess concert series in Chicago, the “Mostly Music” concert series, the UIC concert series, and the Prairie Arts Center in Schaumburg series, where they performed the Beethoven Triple Concerto. In 2012, ICA began partnering with The Tower Chorale based out of Western Springs and was the recipient of a two year Target Corporation grant for Art and Culture in Schools. This allowed ICA to launch a Chamber Music for Kids initiative. Funding continued in 2014 for the Chamber Music for Kids  intiative thanks to the Paul M. Angell Foundation. In April of 2011, ICA was invited by the Polish community of Chicago to do 3 multi-media performance presentations of the Mozart Requiem and Pergolesi Stabat Mater at St. Mary of the Angels Church, St. Gregory the Great Church, and St. Ferdinand’s Church. These performances were to commemorate the tragic deaths of the Polish government officials that died in the April 2010 plane crash. In 2010, ICA gave and performances and masterclasses at the University of North Carolina in Pembroke and at North Park University in Chicago. In September 2009, ICA made its first international performance tour to Germany to critical acclaim. ICA began with a philanthropic mission, donating a portion of concert proceeds to local musical schools and featuring a student performance on each St. Gregory’s concert.
