East Coast Chamber Orchestra
Presented in partnership with KMFA-FM
Texas Performing Arts welcomes one of the most exceptional ensembles of today’s generation!
In 2001, a group of colleagues and friends from leading conservatories and festivals across the country envisioned the creation of a democratically run, self-conducted chamber orchestra that would thrive on the pure joy and camaraderie of classical music-making. The result is East Coast Chamber Orchestra (ECCO), a dynamic collective that combines the strength and power of a great orchestra with the personal involvement and sensitivity of superb chamber music.
ECCO is comprised of soloists, chamber musicians, members of major American orchestras, and Grammy Award-winners, including many musicians who have ties to the prestigious Marlboro Music Festival.
These youthful players are helping form classical music’s future.
