The 2013-2014 season marks Orpheus Chamber Orchestra’s 41st year of making internationally acclaimed music while reinventing the way the world thinks about collaboration and democratic leadership. By performing without a conductor and integrating musicians into virtually every facet of the organization, Orpheus empowers its members to create performances that are uniquely their own.
The orchestra’s discography encompasses more than 70 albums, including the Grammy Award-winning Shadow Dances: Stravinsky Miniatures.
Theresa Chafin, a doctoral student in musicology at UGA, will offer a pre-concert lecture 45 minutes prior to the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra performance.
The lecture is open free to the public.
