Prelude Chicago is a regional program in the Credo family. It is the perfect entry point to the Credo curriculum of invigorating music study, service, and performance. Students engage in musical and personal growth through chamber groups, master classes, large ensembles, and service projects. 2014 Credo Prelude students hailed from a dozen states, and Prelude alumni have gone on to populate such major conservatories as Oberlin and Colburn.

Prelude Chicago students receive extensive daily coaching and mentoring with world-class faculty headed by Peter Slowik of Oberlin Conservatory, joined by other prestigious musicians of the Chicago arts scene. Students are placed in chamber music and residential environments on a basis of musical achievement and social development (age).
