Orpheus Chamber Orchestra is featured in a free outdoor concert at Central Park’s historic Naumburg Bandshell.
The orchestra performs J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos Nos. 2, 3, 5, and 6. Showcasing the many aspects of the Baroque concerto form, these staple of the Orpheus repertoire exude a spirit of cheerfulness and joy. Also on the program is Christopher Theofanidis’ Muse which was commissioned and premiered by Orpheus in 2007 as part of its New Brandenburgs project, and inspired by Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3.
Orpheus Chamber Orchestra is also pleased to announce that violinist Miho Saegusa has been added to its musician roster. Saegusa, who enjoys a multifaceted career as a versatile chamber musician, orchestral leader, and soloist, has performed and toured with Orpheus Chamber Orchestra previously.
