 About CMOP

The Chicago Modern Orchestra Project ©® is an offshoot of the highly successful Mantra Blue FreeOrchestra ©®,both groups directed by Renèe Baker.


While MBFO plays only original compositions by Ms. Baker, involving her own highly developed“conduction-like” style of directing, the CMOP is dedicated to commissioning, performing and recording contemporary creative and classical music of many new composers.


The mission of the orchestra is to excite and encourage new audiences with their own brand of “out-of-the-box” programming. We gratefully acknowledge the individuals, corporations, and foundations whose generous support makes our concerts and recordings possible.



Contact Renèe Baker at: reneebaker@chicagomodernorchestraproject.org for information regarding concert bookings.
