Dr. Verne Schwager - Resident Conductor: Among the goals of the Orchestra are to promote the highest professional level of classical music performances on a regular basis and to support and promote brilliant, young, and talented local musicians and vocal artists.

Responding to the long-held need for a professional caliber symphonic orchestra in the Northwest Suburbs, the Northwest Festival Orchestra was founded in Spring 2006 to fulfill this need for the residents of our communities.

Harper College Performing Arts - Northwest Festival Orchestra are orchestra musical performers located in Palatine, IL.
