RESIDENT ENSEMBLESAnnapolis Chamber Orchestra
THE ANNAPOLIS CHAMBER ORCHESTRA WAS FOUNDED IN 1990 BY MUSIC DIRECTOR J. ERNEST GREEN.
Made up of professional musicians from the region the orchestra has established itself as a mainstay of Live Arts Maryland, appearing on programs with the Annapolis Chorale as well as on it’s own. The orchestra has performed at Carnegie Hall three times, collaborated with world class artists as soloists and guest conductors, and has commissioned new works. In recent years, members of the orchestra have formed the core of the consort that anchors the Bach+ series.
For the 2020-2021 season the orchestra will collaborate with flutist Mimi Stillman, pianist Dan Tepfer, composer Zhou Tian, and Pops soloists Bernard Dotson, Raissa Katona Bennett and Mark Berman. The orchestra will begin a new chapter in September when it starts a new season as an “Ensemble in Residence” at St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in Annapolis.
