National Festival Chamber Orchestra
Combining the demands of chamber music with orchestral performance, the musicians lead each other, performing chamber orchestra repertoire without a conductor.
- WA Mozart: Symphony No. 35 “Haffner”
- Frank Martin: Concerto for Seven Winds and Percussion
- Dmitri Shostakovich/arr. R. Barshai: Chamber Symphony, op. 83a
The National Orchestral Institute Festival brings together aspiring orchestral musicians from across the country for a month of dynamic music-making and professional exploration. Chosen by a rigorous, cross-country audition process, these young artists present passionate and awe-inspiring performances of adventuresome repertoire at The Clarice and in the community.
