Since 2013, NTU Alumni Chamber Ensemble (NTUACE) started to play in the Sunday Worship at the Tustin Taiwan Presbyterian Church, in various community events and in family music parties. We want to get more intimate connections with the community for promoting Classical Chamber Music, and exploring Music Therapy (refer to “Our Intentions”).
I am excited to find an article “Embracing Community: Prometheus Chamber Orchestra” in Violinist.com recently. Prometheus Chamber Orchestra (PCO) was founded in 2013 and has 18 musicians. Here is their artistic statement:
Prometheus Chamber Orchestra is a self-conducted and self-managed orchestra in residence at the historic Church of the Advocate in North Philadelphia. Comprised of 18 musicians, Prometheus seeks to use the self-conducted orchestra to change the way audiences experience orchestra concerts, the relationship of the orchestra to the community, and the way musicians perceive concert programming and artistic responsibility.
