Help me support NCCO!
Please help me support New Century Chamber Orchestra by making a tax-deductible donation through my Sing for America fundraising page. The process is fast, easy, and secure.
One of only a handful of conductorless chamber ensembles in the world, New Century Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1992 and includes 19 string players from the San Francisco Bay Area as well throughout the United States. Musical decisions are made collaboratively, resulting in an enhanced level of commitment from the musicians and concerts of remarkable precision, passion, and power. In the 2017-2018 season, British violinist Daniel Hope served as the ensemble’s Artistic Partner and concertmaster and was appointed beginning in the 2018-2019 season as the ensemble’s Music Director, bringing a new era of vibrancy and leadership. Previous music directors of the ensemble include Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg (2008-2017), Krista Bennion Feeney (1999-2006) and Stuart Canin (1992-1999).
In addition to performing beloved masterworks from the chamber orchestra repertoire, New Century commissions important new works, breathes new life into rarely heard jewels of the past and frequently performs world premieres.
Between now and April, I’ll be rehearsing with the Sing for America Chorus for our Annual Benefit Concert at 7 p.m. on April 16, 2023, at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. This year’s concert will showcase an incredible variety of choral music, beautiful orchestrations, and exceptional guest artists. Our concert theme is “Brand New Day: songs of hope and renewal”.
Even if you can’t donate right now, you can help me reach my fundraising goal by sharing this page on social media or email. Just click the share icons near the top of my page to help me spread the word.
