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 and enhance literacy through music.  

During COVID-19, we were meeting online for rehearsals and having invited guests perform for us throughout the year. As of September 2022, we are meeting in person again!

Usually, 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!

We have openings in our strings sections. If you are interested in joining, please email us at:

Please watch here for updates, sign up for our mailing list, and/or email with questions.



Please join us for a FREE concert on March 7, 2023 featuring works by Beethoven, Price, Rossini, and Weiner. If you are unable or not comfortable attending in-person, we are offering a live stream via Zoom! Please click here to register. 

We hope to see you there!
