Location: Shalin Liu Performance Center, 37 Main Street, 8 pm



The East Coast Chamber Orchestra features soloist performers, principals in major American orchestras, and award-winning chamber musicians in a democratically organized, self-conducted chamber orchestra that thrives on the energy and camaraderie of classical music. Having played in major performance halls throughout the US and sought after for re-engagement, this marks ECCO’s debut at the Shalin Liu Performance Center.

‘The sound of the ensemble mixed the transparency and coherence of a string quartet with an orchestra’s warmth and heft.’
– The New York Times

‘How did ECCO get such a huge sound from 17 instruments? These youthful players are helping form classical music’s future. Long may they ECCO.’
– The Washington Post
