Croatian Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1988. Its founding was encouraged by the Croatian Association of Orchestral and Chamber Musicians.. The idea was put forward by Anđelko Ramušćak who wanted to instigate performing orchestral literature for chamber orchestras, as well as to give a chance to young musicians to present themselves and gain experience. In the year of 1989 the leadership of the orchestra was taken on by a young Japanese conductor Kazushi Ono, who came to Zagreb at that time as a conductor of Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra. Under his leadership the orchestra performed baroque and classical works, but started playing 20th century authors, especially Croatian composers.
 
In 1991, when the world celebrated the 200th anniversary from Mozart's death, the orchestra had its acclaimed concerts, conducted by the internationally renowned bassoonist Rudolf Klepač. Pavle Dešpalj, a notable Croatian conductor and composer became the chief-conductor in the season 1995/96. Today Pavle Dešpalj is a lifelong honorary chief-conductor of the Croatian Chamber Orchestra.
 
The Orchestra celebrate their 25th anniversary in the season 2015/16 by giving a series of six concerts in the Croatian Music Institute.
