Each spring a small group of 18 students are selected by audition for membership. in 2018, The Chamber Orchestra was one of four high school orchestras in the state of Illinois selected to perform at the Illinois Music Educators Conference. The ensemble rehearses bi-weekly outside of the school day. Students in Chamber Orchestra perform advanced repertoire; therefore, a majority of the musicians take private lessons on their instruments. All students are encouraged to study privately, and scholarships are available for those in need. The Chamber Orchestra performs four concerts yearly.
