The Illinois Symphony Orchestra (ISO), led by acclaimed Music Director Ken Lam, is central Illinois’ largest professional orchestra serving over 30,000 community members with a budget of approximately $1.3 million. The ISO celebrates its 27th season of exciting performances with concerts in both Springfield and Bloomington/Normal including symphony orchestra, chamber orchestra, pops concerts and Concerts for Kids.
The ISO’s commitment to the community is highlighted through its award-winning Music Matters! in-school programs for students in Kindergarten – 6th grade; engaging Concerts for Kids, a favorite of students, teachers and parents; and the Around the Town Free Chamber Music Series. Through these programs the ISO brings diverse repertoire and live musical experiences to audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
The ISO, founded in 1993, is the consolidation of two well-established organizations: the Springfield Symphony and the Bloomington Normal Symphony. The ISO has won numerous awards including the Illinois Council of Orchestras’ awards for Meritorious Service in Outstanding Programming, Community Service, and Community Event of the Year, all in recognition of its service and commitment to the citizens of Illinois. The ISO has performed at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall during the tenure of Conductor Laureate Kenneth Kiesler and has made appearances at the Ravinia Festival, Millennium Park in Chicago and the Illinois State Fair.
