About the Orchestra:

The Ars Nova Chamber Orchestra is an innovative 30-member ensemble that performs as a full orchestra with no conductor using chamber music techniques. This means the musicians take over the role of the conductor while they play, trading and sharing leadership within each performance. The result is an invigorating and creative approach to making music, an inspiring model for collaboration, and–most of all–a thrilling concert experience for audiences.

ANCO members bring experience from a variety of distinguished ensembles around DC and the nation; all are united by their commitments to chamber music and artistic collaboration. ANCO is honored to perform regularly as orchestra-in-residence for St. John’s Church Lafayette Square, and for audiences around DC.
