Orpheus Chamber Orchestra (US orchestra)
A self-governing organization since its inception in 1972, Orpheus is committed to illuminating musical works of art, both old and new, for discriminating international audiences in a profoundly unique manner.
Rehearsing, performing and recording without a central authority figure, Orpheus musicians share leadership roles and a deep personal artistic commitment to forge strong emotional connections between the audience and the composer while eliminating any barrier between the listener and the music.
The Orpheus Chamber Orchestra (founded 1972) is a Grammy Award-winning classical music chamber orchestra based in New York City. It is known for its collaborative leadership style in which the musicians, not a conductor, interpret the score.
