Listen: Canadian Chamber Orchestra of NYC at LPR



New York City is a community of locals and immigrants from near and far, so it’s no surprise that Canadian conductor and pianist Justin Bischof chose this city as the home for the Canadian Chamber Orchestra of New York City (CCO/NYC), a showcase for the growing Canadian artistic community in town. On May 4 at (Le) Poisson Rouge, the ensemble performed works by Dimitri Shostakovich and Richard Strauss to bookend a program that included Bischof performing his own improvisation based both on orchestral works and impromptu audience suggestions.
