The Center Presents
EAST COAST CHAMBER ORCHESTRA
at the Palladium
Tuesday, February 5, 2013 at 7:30pm
Over 10 years ago, a group of musicians – colleagues and friends from leading conservatories and music festivals across the country collectively – envisioned the creation of a democratically-run, self-conducted chamber orchestra that would thrive on the pure joy and camaraderie of classical music-making. This organic approach and high level of passion and commitment resulted in ECCO, a dynamic collective that combines the strength and power of a great orchestral ensemble with the personal involvement and sensitivity of superb chamber music. ECCO’s debuts in venues such as New York’s Town Hall and the Kennedy Center confirmed its position as one of the most exceptional ensembles of today’s generation, whose fresh interpretations, coupled with passionate and joyous playing, earn them standing ovations and re-engagements.
Co-presented with the International Violin Competition of Indianapolis.
