Music Worcester presents East Coast Chamber Orchestra
March 15, 2014
In 2001, 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 (The East Coast Chamber Orchestra) 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.
Now soloists, principal musicians from across the country, and renowned affiliates with the Marlboro Music Festival, ECCO has received nothing but great acclaim ever since its formation. The program for their Worcester debut demonstrates ECCO’s efforts to define the future of orchestras – a mix of great works by composers known and unknown, classical and non-classical.
