The Westchester Chamber Soloists, established in January 2020, is a newly-formed chamber
orchestra focused on performing the concerto literature for all solo symphonic instruments and for piano, as well as other
orchestral and selected vocal and choral works. (visit the Performance
Calendar tab for details on our recent and possible upcoming performances)
Based in Westchester County, just minutes from New York City, the ensemble
comprises primarily career professional as well as advanced amateur musicians from the New York metro area, including Connecticut
and New Jersey. Its members are all accomplished solo, chamber and orchestral music performers in addition to being
music educators, many with close ties to conservatories, prominent chamber music ensembles and other artistic institutions
in the greater New York area and worldwide. (read more about
our members on the Meet Our Musicians tab)
to a select group of classical music ensembles, WCS operates as a self-governed enterprise
and performs primarily without a conductor, guided instead by the keen musical instincts and insights of - and communication
between - its performers. We also seek to establish sustainable ongoing relationships with colleges and other institutions,
for example through the involvement of select faculty and advanced music students in our performances (read more about these initiatives on the Our Mission & Community Support tab)
And as a concerto-focused enterprise, the Orchestra draws its soloists from within, enabling its
members to share their musical artistry as both ensemble players and soloists.
its inaugural performance in March 2020, WCS looks forward to returning to the
stage for performances featuring concertos and orchestral works from the Classical and Baroque to the Romantic era and 20th
century, and to performing in some of Westchester's most elegant and intimate venues. In its initial programs, WCS -
with pianist Alan Murray - embarks on the complete cycles of Beethoven's 5 Piano Concertos & Choral Fantasy (in
recognition of the 250th anniversary of the composer's birth) and Mozart's Piano Concertos, complemented by
a breadth of other concerto and orchestral masterpieces from the baroque to the present.
Please join us for our online "At Home Concert Series" featuring Mozart's complete Piano Concertos,
