New Haven's Premier Chamber Orchestra

Welcome to the home of the New Haven Chamber Orchestra! 

We are an intergenerational community orchestra with a dual mission: to bring the wonderful realm of orchestral chamber music to the greater New Haven community and to promote literacy through music.  

The New Haven Chamber Orchestra performs three concerts a year.  Come join us for these FREE concerts and experience the joy of chamber music for yourself!

Check out the site to see what has been happening with the orchestra and find out how you can be a part of supporting the arts in New Haven!
