The American Chamber Orchestra continues to bring top quality music to Fairfield County. One arts council recently rated the ACO as one of the top five orchestras in the county.

I had the pleasure of hearing the American Chamber Orchestra in concert on February 6, 2010. This was an ambitious and highly rewarding program featuring Leslie C. Smith performing the Josef Rheinberger Organ Concerto #1 in F Major, Bedrich Smetana’s the Moldau from Ma Vlast and the Schumann Symphony #1, the Spring Symphony. Throughout the evening, this rich romantic music sparkled and sang as conductor Christopher James Hisey and the musicians rose to the occasion. The Rheinberger was a highlight of the evening with orchestra and organ interplay truly beautiful. The andante movement was especially gorgeous and transported the audience. The spring symphony is always a treat and was a welcome reminder of the season to come on a dark and cold February night. This is a fine organization and is a real treasure to have based here in Fairfield County.

I had the privilege of attending an American Chamber Orchestra performance in October 2009 that featured Dorothy Kolinsky perform, as a soloist, Piano Concerto in A minor by Robert Schumann. What a memorable event it was for my sister and me! The experience was unparalled--wonderful music played by a superlative pianist-- with an added bonus that it was held close to home (rather than in NYC, where we must typically go for a'dose' of arts and culture), in a comfortable environment where the music resonated. Dorothy's stellar performance was moving and uplifting in equal parts. Bringing fine performances close to home and making them accessible to the local community is an important and vital function that The American Chamber Orchestra has brought to Fairfield County.

VERY enthusiastic, extremely appreciative of their audience's support.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

make more beautiful music for our (and other) communities and figure out a way to replicate their model around the globe.
