Exuberant vitality, imaginative programming, and dedication to performances of the highest caliber have characterized Orchestra 2001's performances and recordings ever since its founding in April of 1988. The ensemble gives an annual series of concerts in Philadelphia and another at Swarthmore College where it is Ensemble-in-Residence. At the invitation of the Moscow Conservatory, Orchestra 2001 traveled to Russia in both 1993 and 1994 where it presented a series of concerts of 20th-century American music to cheering audiences. The ensemble is committed to bringing the best music of our time - especially by Philadelphia-area composers to as wide an audience as possible. That mandate has resulted in several remarkable outreach projects involving minorities, inner city children, and senior citizens, as well as to invitations from international festivals all over the world.
