Westchester Chamber Soloists is comprised of approximately 35 musicians with a range of educational and professional backgrounds. Most are career performing musicians with affiliations to other leading symphonies, opera orchestras, conservatories, theater groups and/or elite chamber ensembles, many with advanced degrees from the nation's and world's leading music academies, and many of whom also provide instruction either privately or at highly regarded conservatories/schools.  Others represent a range of other professions including medicine / healthcare, finance and insurance, law, pharmaceuticals, science, technology, energy, education, arts/artist management and other fields – but all of them seasoned solo and/or ensemble performers.  Uniting all WCS members is a singular passion for sharing fine chamber and orchestral music with attentive audiences in the spirit of community and cultural enrichment.
