“I am excited to kickoff our season with a new series we are launching. OPEN CCCO is meant to be an opportunity for audience members to ask questions, participate in the musical experience directly, and learn why we are so moved emotional by music. In classical music listeners often do not have a chance to communicate directly to the performers, so we are trying to change that,” shares Scinto.

By collaborating with other disciplines of art and culture, the Orchestra aims to create unique concert experiences while providing exciting, enriching and memorable orchestral music. Spotlighting living composers is at the forefront of the orchestra’s mission; bringing audiences closer to the music of modern time, positioned as an essential and educational element to each performance program. Other repertoire emphasize the championing of works of living composers, as well as the music of the classical canon.
