  This past season, the Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia celebrated its 50th anniversary. Started as the Concerto Soloists in 1964, by then-Music Director Marc Mostovoy as a way for audiences to hear Baroque and Classical chamber works, and to provide performance opportunities for young professional musicians emerging from the Curtis Institute of Music and other regional training programs, the ensemble's reputation has only grown stronger over the years.
