Chicago Symphony will launch three-year residency at Artis-Naples in 2019

Posted on: February 2, 2018

The Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and the Cleveland Orchestra “are coming to Artis-Naples next year, and Chicago’s appearance will be the first in a three-year residency,” writes Harriet Howard Heithaus in Thursday’s (2/1) Naples Daily News (Florida). In addition to presenting guest orchestras, Artis-Naples is home to the Naples Philharmonic. “[Chicago] has performed in Naples at least twice before and … the residency will be a … three-year visit, … beginning with two concerts Feb. 28 and March 2, 2019. The Vienna Philharmonic, which finishes its three-year residency this month, has expanded its relationship each year. Sharing visiting orchestra honors in the coming year will be the first visit by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam, known for its distinctive sound and quality of musicianship. This is only its second visit to Florida, and its first to Naples. The Cleveland Orchestra, a familiar presence as a visitor, will also appear … next season, on Jan. 27, with Music Director Franz Welser-Möst. This year’s engagement features a debut in Naples for the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus, which will come to perform in the Mahler Symphony No. 2.”
