The New York Chamber Virtuosi is an orchestra and chamber music organization based in New York City. It was founded by clarinetist and composer Jessica Sibelman in 2009.[1]

History[edit]

According to its mission statement, the NYCV seeks to combine "New York's energetic young professionals with a fresh approach to breaking down musical boundaries between the performer and audience. While keeping true to the classic orchestra, The NYCV looks to combine orchestral literature with a twist, to make classical music more accessible to a growing, diverse public."[2]

The NYCV has presented orchestral music performances in a variety of settings, including prominent venues such as Carnegie Hall's Zankel Hall[3] and Merkin Hall in New York City.[4][5][6] Through its Soiree Series, the NYCV has performed at the Gershwin Hotel,[7] assorted arts spaces in New York and New Jersey, and educational institutions.[8]

Finally, the NYCV has presented a series of educational workshops for adults and children through its Outreach Series[9] and Family Concert[10] programs.
