Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia

Selected Sundays, 5 to 6 pm

Once a month we bring you live, recorded concert performances of The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia led by Music Director Dirk Brossé.

The third Sunday of the month on WRTI at 5 pm is our broadcast of the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia, and this month we present a delightful mix of pieces from three different concerts.

Our monthly broadcast of The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia presents the U.S. premiere of a work for piano and orchestra by the Lebanese-born, French composer Rami Kalifé.  

It's a special holiday-themed Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia broadcast this Saturday, December 24th at 11 am. Three conductors, Christmas-time music, and Music Director Dirk Brossé's arranging skills will be on full display!
