The Chicago Cuatro Orchestra

The Chicago Cuatro Orchestra is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit community music program serving directly the city of Chicago. The Chicago Cuatro Orchestra was founded in 1996 with the purpose of creating a cultural program to preserve Puerto Rico’s national instrument, the Cuatro, and to begin the tradition of a Cuatro festival in Chicago. The Chicago Cuatro Orchestra is directed by Orlando and David Rivera, two professional music teachers from Chicago, and has performed in many important cultural venues. Among others, the Orchestra has performed at The Chicago Symphony Orchestra Center, The Auditorium Theatre, The Great Chicago Theater, and at The Millennium Park Harris Theatre. In the present, the Chicago Cuatro Orchestra is offering free Cuatro and Spanish guitar classes to the Humboldt Park community children. The future plans are to duplicate the Cuatro program in different cities of the U. S. A., and to create a national Cuatro program network. With this network in place, The Chicago Cuatro Orchestras’ qualified staff will train music teachers, and will expand the program all over United States, creating one day, The U. S. National Puerto Rican Cuatro Orchestra and Festival.
