The New Brunswick Chamber Orchestra performs music that we think matters, whether it was written in the Middle Ages or sometime next year, in the heart of Old Europe or the new conservatories of East Asia. 

We trace our history back to 1960, when a group of amateur musicians in the New Brunswick area came together to play classical works for their own pleasure. Gradually the group has evolved into a professional ensemble of 16 to 26 musicians that tackles some of the biggest assignments possible for chamber orchestras. We're as comfortable performing works such as Handel’s “Messiah” and Copland’s “Appalachian Spring” as we are with John Adams' "Shaker Loops" or Piazzolla's "Four Seasons".  We really love working with composers, and at almost every performance, you can be guaranteed you'll hear something new.

We are a mobile ensemble as comfortable at a local church as in the historic State Theatre or the intimate Crossroads stage.  We frequently perform in one of the two art venues in the city: Zimmerli Art Museum and Alfa Art Gallery.  You'll also see us performing with soloists, choirs and dance ensembles from throughout the area.

As concert musicians we have inherited a tradition, but we are not constrained by it.  Modern classical music has few boundaries and many possibilities: multimedia, minimalism, dance, film and theater. Come and see what you think.
