The ISO Concert Orchestra, led by Eric Dudley, is for musicians with advanced-intermediate level technical and sight-reading skills. The ensemble performs annually in halls like Symphony Space, Lincoln Center and throughout New York City. An audition is required for membership, as are registration and tuition fees. This orchestra is perfect for the developing player who is ready to take on more challenging repertoire.
An annual concerto competition is held each winter and is open to members who have spent at least one year in the ISO Concert Orchestra. Competition winners perform at Concert Orchestra’s final concert of the year.
