Our Mission & Vision

Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra advances and promotes music composed for the small orchestra through professional concert performances and education programs.

Our Commitment to DEIA

The ICO is committed to increase inclusion, diversity, equity and access in all aspects of the organization and strives to be a leader among non-profit performing arts organizations.

Toward this goal, we will establish policies, procedures and training programs, pursue specific initiatives and commit significant resources. This policy is closely aligned with our long-term strategic plan.

Inclusion, diversity, equity and access is closely connected to our mission of offering music for the small orchestra to everybody in the community, including those who might have had little exposure to classical music in their lives. We commit to explore any underlying, unquestioned assumptions in our organization that prevent us from reaching these goals. The Executive Director and Music Director are expected to be visible leaders for achieving diversity and inclusion for the organization.
