About This Performance

The Society’s annual collaboration with ECCO features 17 leading soloists and chamber musicians of today’s younger generation, many of whom are principals in major American orchestras or 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.
