The Buonacorsi Foundation is also a sponsor of the Camerata Chicago. Camerata Chicago, a chamber orchestra of 16 - 20 musicians was founded in 2003. Bringing together some of the best musicians in Chicago conductor Drostan Hall has founded one of the finest chamber orchestras to emerge on the world stage in quite some time. The ensemble is equally at home in intimate settings as well as larger chamber music venues, performing the rich tapestry of diverse string repertoire including newly commissioned works. Camerata Chicago stands while playing, heightening the expressive freedom of the musicians, thus intensifying the projection of the music, as well as being visually compelling.
