Following their triumphant return to Orchestra Hall/Symphony Center, Chicago in spring 2015, the midwest's remarkable orchestra and chorus of lawyers and judges heads home to St James Episcopal Cathedral (Wabash at Huron) for its 31st season of concerts to delight every music lover.

CHORAL CONDUCTOR SEARCH SEASON: During 2016-17, three candidates audition for the post of Director of the CBA Chorus. Each will prepare music for the chorus to perform with the orchestra, as well as conducting the CBA Chorus in shorter choral selections. Audiences will be invited to share their impressions of each candidate as we seek to select the perfect person to lead the CBA Chorus into its second decade.

Stephen Blackwelder is currently Music Director of the Waukegan Symphony (since 2000) and Director of the DePaul Community Chorus (since 2005). Previous positions include Music Director of the Hinsdale Chamber Orchestra (1983-94) and numerous civic and educational orchestral, opera, and choral ensembles in the greater Chicago area. As a professional singer, he performed frequently under conductors James Levine, Robert Shaw, Sir Georg Solti, Claudio Abbado and Margaret Hillis while a member of the Chicago Symphony Chorus and the Aspen Chamber Choir. He served on the conducting staff of the Harford Opera Theater of Baltimore, Hinsdale Opera, Opera Illinois, Opera da Corneto and Chicago Opera Theater and also on the faculties of Lake Forest College, East Carolina University and DePaul Universitys CMD.

Blackwelder holds a BM from the University of North Carolina (1978) and a MM from Northwestern University (1979). Professional study included four seasons with the Aspen Music Festival and conducting master classes with Sir Georg Solti, Max Rudolf and Erich Leinsdorf.
