Review for American Chamber Orchestra, Norwalk, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

attending performances that they bring to my community. The high quality of performances and their desire to give back to their community by bringing joyous music to our doorstep is to be commended.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The performances that they offer are always high-quality and appealing.

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

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.
