The September 8 featured artist:
Prometheus Chamber Orchestra: http://www.prometheuschamberorchestra.org
Prometheus Chamber Orchestra is Philadelphia’s self-conducted and self-managed chamber orchestra. Its individual members perform at the highest levels, having studied at major conservatories and universities such as the Curtis Institute, San Francisco Conservatory, Indiana University, the Hartt School of Music, and Temple University. Its members also have an affinity for creative improvisation, rock, bluegrass, jazz, and other musical styles in which the artist sees an opportunity to fuse artistry with ingenuity. Beyond outstanding musicianship, Prometheus Chamber Orchestra boasts a wealth of expertise in other fields, which allows Prometheus to operate as a self-managed ensemble.
Founded in 2013, Prometheus uses its unique model 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. Prometheus is the orchestra in residence at the Church of the Advocate, a venue and spiritual center that has a rich history of supporting the arts and social consciousness.
