Madras Chamber Orchestra

I was stunned to learn that the Madras Chamber Orchestra (MCO in Short) was revived last April’09 after nearly two decades of silence. That too for a 40 year old music group 20 years is definitely a long gap.

Was very happy to be watching their second act yesterday at the Egmore Museum Theatre. Revived and Conducted by Bernard Wacheux, a French national based out of Pondicherry and also a Violinist.

The Stage is set now for the Bach’s, the Beethoven’s and Vivaldi’s to flow again in the Heart of Chennai.

The Crowd’s now eager for the Chamber Music from the well trained and passionate 20+ String players of the MCO.

With an eminent conductor who has the passion to revive after nearly two decades and driving 300 odd KMs every weekend to practise with his team.

The Madras Chamber Orchestra needs to be supported by the public and not just Gatsby or Satsang with their sponsorships to enable us to listen to such lovely composers.
