Welcome to the Naples Community Orchestra 2021 Season

The prospect of live classical concerts may feel far off amid the Coronavirus pandemic, but we remain optimistic that this will pass before our scheduled season. We have planned an exciting series of concerts which embody our mission of live and affordable classical music. Here is what we know right now.

Our concert season has been trimmed to three performances to allow for a later starter date. Each program will have one performance on Saturday afternoon at 3:30 p.m. The dates for the concerts are February 20, March 20, and April 23. All concerts will once again take place at Moorings Presbyterian Church.

Most importantly Artistic Director Max Rabinovitsj returns to leads the orchestra for his7th season! We know you join us in expressing our gratitude to have him as both our Artistic Director and as a member of the Naples community.


Maestro Rabinovitsj has planned three concert programs of beloved classical works. Each concert features a soloist of the highest order.

The season opens with Emerson Millar,Artis Naples’ Co-Concertmaster performing the Bruch Violin Concerto. Ms. Millar is followed by Naples own pianist Priscila Navarro performing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3. Our Season Finale concludes with the return of violist, Stella Chen.
