The “C” in ICO

Often referred to as simply ICO, Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra commits to delivering “Intimate, Classic and Original” concert performances and educational programming each year. It’s been a calling card and an important part of our mission for over 30 years. While the “C” stands for chamber and classic, the “C” also represents the heart of our everyday work — COLLABORATION and COMMUNITY! 
Just this last fall, ICO co-presented Earshot with the American Composers Orchestra featuring the works of 5 young composers, provided professional orchestral accompaniment for American Pianist Association and Indianapolis Opera presentations, participated in the 50th Anniversary Indiana State University Contemporary Music Festival, premiered a TV documentary featuring ICO Composer-in-Residence James Aikman’s Peacemakers on WFYI, and more! Your ICO has been busy bringing our best to the community and is proud to play critical leadership and supporting roles.
Indianapolis Chamber Orchestra advances and promotes music composed for the small orchestra 
through concert performances and education programs.
We present:
  • Inspirational concert experiences under the direction of Maestro Matthew Kraemer
  • Cross-curriculum education programs in schools and in the community.
  • Collaborative engagements with ICO partner organizations like American Pianist Association, Indianapolis Opera, Indianapolis Symphonic Choir and others
  • Weekly Radio Broadcasts on WFYI 90.1
  • And, much more!


With your support we reach over 30,000 annually. That’s 3,000+ students and families from 8 Central Indiana schools, 12,000+ people listening to weekly ICO Radio Broadcasts and 15,000+ people at various concerts across Indiana.
