Baltimore Chamber Orchestra’s first performance was on January 29, 1984. The orchestra introduces audiences to a classical orchestra offering virtuoso performances that touch the heart. From its beginning, Baltimore Chamber Orchestra has grown to occupy an essential niche in the thriving arts scene of greater Baltimore.
BCO’s core repertoire is the overtures, concertos, and symphonies of Classical Era masters Haydn, Mozart Beethoven, Mendelssohn and Schubert, which we perform with the actual sized ensemble for which it was composed. The Orchestra remains a group of exceptional musicians who are passionate about their performances. Indeed, the orchestra strives to meet the same standard established at its inception in 1984: to provide accessible, high-quality, classical music with an intimate touch.
