The Orchestra of The Bronx is a fully professional orchestra made up of some of the finest instrumentalists emerging in the New York area as well as those who are well established in the musical life of the City. Michael Spierman, the organization's founder and music director chooses soloists based not only on their facility, but on the depth of their artistry. The unique spirit and level of excellence of this orchestra makes for some of the most exciting concerts presented in the New York City area.
Founded in 1972 as the Bronx Chamber Orchestra, the ensemble gave many outstanding concerts throughout the borough, from Riverdale to the South Bronx. Over the past several years the organization has undergone a metamorphosis, resulting in an even fuller sound, a wider range of repertoire, and culminating in a change to its current name in 1999.
Lehman College's Lovinger Theater has served as the home for the Orchestra and its fellow classical company, The Bronx Opera, now preparing for its 46th season and counting down to its Golden Anniversary.
