The Chamber Orchestra Of Philadelphia's Recent Success Stories

After some uncertain times, the Philadelphia classical music scene is enjoying one of its brightest periods. While most of this is a reflection of the resurgence of The Philadelphia Orchestra, the ensemble that shares its Kimmel Center home is also on the up and up, as WRTI's Jim Cotter reports.

Seen by many as the smaller sibling of the "Fabulous Philadelphians," The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia has been quietly growing and expanding in ways that are causing similar groups around the country to sit up and take notice.

The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia' 2013-14 season opens on September 15th and 16th with a program conducted by Sir Dirk Brosse featuring works by Mendelssohn and Beethoven.  Full audio and video of the concert will be available online shortly thereafter.
