Orpheus Chamber Orchestra

Tuesday, February 25, 2014 - 8:00pm
Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts ( view map )


Orpheus Chamber Orchestra has celebrated 40 years of making internationally renowned music while reinventing the way the world thinks about musical collaboration, education and outreach. Orpheus has made more than 70 albums, including the Grammy® Award-winning Shadow Dances: Stravinsky Miniatures, worked with some of the leading soloists of our time in the United States and around the globe, and commissioned and premiered 34 original works.

By performing without a conductor and integrating musicians into virtually every facet of the organization, Orpheus empowers its members and infuses performances with unparalleled energy. The Orpheus Process™, an original method that places democracy at the center of artistic execution, has been the focus of studies at Harvard and Stanford, and of leadership seminars at Morgan Stanley and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital, among others.
