Culver City Chamber Orchestra
The Culver City Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1997 as a non-profit organization by the Cárdenes family with three of their children, Andrés, Arlette and Alys, who grew up in Culver City and began music lessons at El Marino Elementary School, later becoming professional musicians and educators.
The Orchestra's mission is to enrich the culture and music life of our and nearby communities, presenting world-renowned, as well as young aspiring musicians as soloists, educational, outreach and family concerts. Many internationally acclaimed musicians have appeared in our concerts, such as: Roberto Diaz, violist and President of the Curtis Institute, Philadelphia; Ann Williams, principal cellist, Pittsburgh Symphony; Mark Nuccio, co-principal clarinet, New York Philharmonic; Arturo Delmoni, violinist, concertmaster New York City Ballet; David Deveau, pianist, Music Director, Rockport Music Festival, Boston; Martin Chalifour, concertmaster Los Angeles Philharmonic; Allan Vogel, principal oboe, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra; Andrés Díaz, cellist, Díaz trio, to name but a few.
The Orchestra is deeply dedicated to performing music of our time, premiering compositions by Aurelio de la Vega, Marylou Newmark, Sylvia Mann and Gwyneth Walker.
For our outreach programs, the Orchestra had featured actors in period costumes (i.e. Mozart, Grieg, Bach, Haydn, etc.) as narrators. The Orchestra often collaborates with other arts organizations such as Creative Planet School for the Arts presenting Peter and the Wolf. Several artistic endeavors of recent seasons were the presentation of our 4th of July concert highlighting a brass choir of young musicians and a Family Concert with four outstanding young soloists, 9 to 18 years of age. Another young musicians' concert, presented at the Moss Theater in Santa Monica, featured 4 winners of the Music Teachers' Association West Los Angeles Branch.
One of this season's highlights was a unique concert entitled "Cello Mania", with 8 outstanding cellists performing classical as well as contemporary and pop music bringing together an audience of diverse musical tastes. Our next concert, May 3, will include winners of the Music Teachers' Association Competition, and in June we will present Peter and the Wolf at the Kirk Douglas Theater, Culver City.
