Orchestra 2001 is a collective of adventurous, virtuoso performers dedicated to the music of our time. The ensemble strives to be an international leader in connecting diverse audiences with the greatest music of the 20th and 21st centuries, engaging new listeners through exhilarating concerts, innovative artistic collaborations, and enriching community partnerships in Philadelphia and beyond.
Orchestra 2001 is the resident musical ensemble at the new Cherry Street Pier on the Delaware Riverfront!
"Cherry Street Pier Is Philly's Best New Thing" – Philadelphia Magazine
This arts hub on Philadelphia’s burgeoning waterfront opened on October 12thand now serves as our new office, rehearsal studio, and collaborative performance space. Visitors will have opportunities to see musicians and composers at work, all while enjoying food, drink, and visiting artists in the ever-changing exhibits and markets on the Pier.
We are especially excited to announce the arrival of our “Composer At Work” window at our Pier studio shortly, funded by the Musical Fund Society of Philadelphia, where dozens of Philadelphia-area composers of all ages and genres will have a chance to work on site, and present their music to new audiences.
Orchestra 2001 thanks its recent Foundation, Government, and Organizational Contributors!
