What others say about the BCO:

“…musicians of the Boston Chamber Orchestra gave a richly detailed, powerful and polished performance of the Marcel Tyberg sextet… Balance and ensemble playing was beautifully executed within a highly nuanced interpretation. Throughout the performance, the musicians imparted color and grand scope to each movement. The result was a near orchestral balance of sound. The scherzo offered cleanly articulated playing while the Adagio offered burnished tone and poetic sensitivity.”

 – JoAnn Falletta,  Music Director of the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, Principal Conductor of the Ulster Orchestra in Belfast, Northern Ireland


“The Boston Chamber Orchestra is a highly dynamic, young group of musicians… I hope to continue working together in the future!

 – Sergey Antonov, Gold Medal Winner, International Tchaikovsky Competition
