Austin Orchestrates

Chicago Sinfonietta is pleased to partner with Circle Urban Ministries for our premiere season of the Residents Orchestrate Project.

For more than 40 years, Circle Urban Ministries has been working to make the Austin community a better place to live, learn, grow and succeed. Circle Urban has developed a four-pronged approach to bringing community transformation: inspire children, engage partners, empower communities, and equip families.

In addition to the Ministries, this partnership engages Catalyst Circle Rock School and the Sistema Ravinia Orchestra Program. Learn more about this year's events below.
