Listen & Watch

The sweet joy of listening to music. The contemplative watching of an orchestra. Classical music elicits a deep well of emotions. Calm and meditative. Triumphant and heroic. Joyful and exciting. Sadness and loss. Desire and rapture. As each orchestra member plays, together they create music that transports the listener with each note. Emotional. Absorbing. Euphoric.


Playing beautiful music is what we love. Sharing with you is what we do.  We invite you to listen (or watch) some of our favorite selections.
