About the Freisinger Chamber Orchestra
The Boston-based Freisinger Chamber Orchestra began in June, 2008. We perform everything from the standard repertoire to world premieres.
The Mission of the Freisinger Chamber Orchestra is to present music from the baroque to the twenty-first century, including premieres. Our programming aims for variety of musical styles. The FCO features emerging soloists and composers.
The orchestra provides the opportunity for college-aged music students and professionals to perform great chamber orchestra repertoire. It also provides the Boston area public the chance to hear wonderful music at a reasonable cost.
The strings and winds are mostly graduate students and alumni from Boston University, New England Conservatory, the Longy School of Music, and the Boston Conservatory at Berklee. FCO concert performances also feature emerging singers in repertoire from opera to Broadway, accompanied by the conductor at the piano.
In addition to concerts, we host readings of large orchestral works (Mahler, Bruckner, Berlioz, Debussy, Stravinsky, Schoenberg, Beethoven, Schumann, Dvorak, Strauss, Ravel, Sibelius, Shostakovich, Rachmaninov, Elgar), which provide Boston’s excellent young professionals (and skilled amateurs) opportunities to play large orchestral masterpieces by great composers.
