About This Performance

PCMS’s annual collaboration with ECCO features a dozen leading soloists and chamber musicians of today’s younger generation, many of whom are principals in major American orchestras as well as leaders of internationally renowned quartets. This “exciting, conductor-less band of strings” (New Yorker) combines the power and expansiveness of a great orchestral ensemble with the personal involvement and spontaneity of chamber music.
