We love making music in the concert hall, but outside of the hall the your ESO is also a vibrant and active part of our community. Through bringing the healing power of music to patients, connecting with kids, and supporting other worthy organizations in the area – the staff and musicians at the ESO create lasting connections through the programs below:
52 WEEKS a year, ESO musicians bring the healing power of music to patients, their families and staff at ADVOCATE GOOD SHEPHERD HOSPITAL and ADVOCATE SHERMAN HOSPITAL through their foundation and the ESO Musicians Care program.
The Elgin Symphony Orchestra is a proud partner and supporter of Food for Greater Elgin.
The musicians at the ESO bring the excitement of live, classical music to kids in all kinds of places! Our traveling ensembles go to schools and community events all over the Fox Valley area, and our free Family Concerts take place four times a year at Gail Borden Public Library.
