Dear Friends of NCO,
THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR 2021 SEASON A SUCCESS
Thank you to our donors, concertgoers and musicians. We overcame COVID-19’s challenges and held three, beautiful chamber music concerts, each with an outstanding soloist. We even learned how to make Livestreaming available to ensure concert attendance was possible for many people who were not able to attend, both in Florida and across the country! We could not have done this without you.
We are planning the 2022 season and will announce our new conductor, programs, and soloists soon. We plan to return with a full orchestra and present the quality programs you’ve come to expect.
The best way to learn about our 2022 season is to sign up for our newsletter announcements here.

INTRODUCING OUR 2021 SEASON
Maestro Rabinovitsj has planned three programs to highlight the expertise of our soloists and chamber ensemble.
The season opens with Emerson Millar, Co-Concertmaster of the Naples Philharmonic, performing Bach and Vivaldi. Milana Strezeva, piano joins Ms. Millar for Chausson’s Poéme and Tzigane by Ravel. Ms. Millar is followed by Naples own pianist Priscila Navarro performing Bach, Mozart and Gershwin. Our Season Finale concludes with the return of internationally acclaimed violinist, Stella Chen. Ms. Chen performs works of Bach and R. Strauss. Milana Strezeva will join Ms. Chen for the Strauss Violin Sonata in E-flat major. Max Rabinovitsj joins Ms. Chen for the Bach Concerto for Two Violins, “the Double.”
