Review for American Chamber Orchestra, Westport, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The musicians love to play in this orchestra.
