Mission Statement

La Forza Chamber Orchestra was created to offer professional quality musical performances by small to medium sized orchestral ensembles. Orchestra members are drawn from throughout the Phoenix, Arizona metropolitan area. The focus of the orchestra is to present exciting orchestral repertoire that will engage people while reaching as broad an audience as possible. The concerts are aimed at families, students, or anyone who simply enjoys orchestral music.

Programs

La Forza Chamber Orchestra currently performs twice a year, in September and May. The orchestra also sponsors a chamber music concert each January.


La Forza Chamber Orchestra assembles the top musicians from community orchestras in the Phoenix Metropolitan area and is thus able to provide high quality, free performances to the public. Featured soloists have included two performers on the Steinway national performance roster. A focus of the orchestra is providing lesser known works by well-known orchestra composers. Examples of this programming include Aaron Copland’s “Quiet City,” the ballet music by Paul Dukas “La Peri” and Tchaikovsky’s “The Tempest.” In this manner the orchestra is able to expand the musical experience of both the players and audience.La Forza Chamber Orchestra assembles the top musicians from community orchestras in the Phoenix Metropolitan area and is thus able to provide high quality, free performances to the public.
