Westchester Chamber Soloists is comprised of approximately 30 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, all with advanced degrees from the nation's and world's leading music academies, many of whom also provide instruction either privately or at highly regarded conservatories/schools. Others represent a range of other professions including medicine / healthcare, pharmaceuticals, law, finance and insurance, science, technology, energy, education, pharmaceuticals, artist management and other fields – but all of them seasoned solo and/or ensemble performers, including with leadership roles at other musical organizations, and many of whom also hold pre-college, university and/or graduate-level degrees or diplomas in music. Uniting all WCS members is a singular passion for sharing fine music with attentive audiences in the spirit of community and cultural enrichment.
