About the Artist

​Imagine hearing two dozen of the very best young string players in the country play music they love with all the passion and fire at their command. Now imagine that, as a bonus, they ask you to play with them! It would be like winning the lottery, minus the taxes. That’s precisely what ECCO is, and what they’ll do in Princeton. The East Coast Chamber Orchestra comprises members of the world-renowned orchestras of Philadelphia, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco, along with leading young chamber musicians and Time For Three’s Nick Kendall. What this democratic ensemble does not have is a conductor. Their concert will include a delightful Divertimento by Mozart and a Tchaikovsky's lush Serenade for Strings. In between those two works, every string player with an instrument in tow will be invited to perform with ECCO! Even if you’re not concertizing yourself, the experience is guaranteed to reverberate for a very long time.
