Now in its fifth decade, the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra has grown in size and scope to become one of the cultural cornerstones of the greater Cincinnati area. Founded as a volunteer organization in 1974, the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra today has a core membership of 33 paid union musicians. Under the direction of Music Director Mischa Santora, the artistic goal of the Chamber Orchestra is to perform music that is not generally heard when attending concerts presented by a large symphony orchestra, and thereby offer a distinctive musical experience to the listener. The orchestra's size allows for flexibility and creativity in programming and represents the ideal size group for orchestral works from Baroque to contemporary composers.
