Students from the Yale School of Music have formed a new chamber orchestra.
The Amadeus Chamber Orchestra, which consists of approximately 25 members, will make its debut this Friday at St. Mary’s Church. Louis Lohraseb MUS ’16, who pioneered the group, said he first though about founding the orchestra after noticing that orchestral chamber works — particularly pieces from the classical and baroque period — were severely underperformed at Yale.
He said he created the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra to perform these works and to offer Yale students more performance opportunities. Though other chamber groups on campus, such as the Cantata Profana have been playing smaller eclectic works, the new group will provide an opportunity for Yale musicians to perform small orchestral chamber works from this underrepresented period, he explained.
