GALA AT THE MEYMANDI THEATRE AT THE MURPHEY SCHOOL — July 2

In 1999, young virtuosos from different cultures gathered around a musical score for their fondness for chamber music. The specific sonority of the Brussels Chamber Orchestra, as well as an extremely profound stylistic research is the result of this union. Indeed, this group brings together six nationalities, each individual bringing their own country's cultural sensitivity, forging a fabulous covenant between Asian discipline and European fantasy.
