"... a cohesive and finely-disciplined group despite being just out of the starting gate..."
- John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune, October 4, 2011
"... one expected technically gleaming and virtuosic performance and the Chroma Chamber Orchestra certainly delivered in a varied program featuring two superb solo turns and a world premiere written for the occasion..."
- Lawrence A. Johnson, Chicago Classical Review, October 3, 2011
"...Crane showed a sure feel for this music, the jaunty cross-rhythms, introspection and deep vein of nostalgia and sadness... The well-rehearsed playing had all the brash vitality and brassy panache required and Crane brought a unity and momentum to the connected six sections...".
- Lawrence A. Johnson, Chicago Classical Review, April 2, 2012
"...The concert opened with a world premier by David Crane, Ode to the Telegraph, inspired by a poem he commisoned from poet Richard Jones. Prefaced by Jones reading his poem, the work is about tenminiutes long and offers a subtly intricate study of rhythm and urgency..."
- Wynne Delacoma, Chicago Classical Review, June 4
With great anticipation we announced the Chroma Chamber Orchestra's inaugural 2011-2012 season, comprising three concerts at Nichols Hall in Evanston as orchestra-in-residence at the prestigious Music Institute of Chicago. The CCO’s programming emphasizes late-romantic and early modern repertoire (and select contemporary works) of enormous appeal rarely performed by area ensembles. These works are presented in a context that integrates the performing, visual and literary arts to create a unique, multifaceted concert experience.
The CCO collaborates with distinguished soloists, composers, writers, visual artists, choreographers, art historians - and diverse educational and cultural institutions (including MIC), from dance companies to art galleries, spanning the entire spectrum of the arts. Opportunities for synergy and cross-fertilization have been truly exciting and unparalleled.
The first concert on October 2, 2011, featured internationally acclaimed soprano Elizabeth Futral singing Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915.
