Orpheus Chamber Orchestra Opening Night Gala 


The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra performing at Carnegie Hall.

On October 23, The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra celebrated the Opening Night of its 2007-08 Carnegie Hall season.

The festive evening began with cocktails and a dinner in The Rohatyn Room at Carnegie Hall. The dinner was followed by a concert with guest artist Yefim Bronfman. The program the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra presented included two virtuosic and lively works of Brahms—Hungarian Dances No. 1, 3 & 10,and Piano Concerto No. 1, Op. 15 in D minor—coupled with Schoenberg's harmonically dynamic Chamber Symphony No. 1. The evening concluded with a champagne reception for the artists.

The Grammy Award-winning Orpheus Chamber Orchestra is internationally renowned for its fine artistry and distinctive approach to music-making, with a performing and recording legacy “full of the energy and intensity that have been Orpheus trademarks for 35 years” (Chicago Tribune). Performing with many of today's most dynamic and esteemed soloists, Orpheus presents an annual concert series at Carnegie Hall that illuminates both classic orchestral repertoire and new works by contemporary composers. Noted by critics and audiences alike for its unsurpassed energy, sensitivity, and connection to listeners, Orpheus is considered one of New York's cultural treasures. Orpheus tours on a regular basis throughout the United States, Europe, and Asia and offers education and outreach programs for children and adults from diverse communities.
