About the Ticket Supplier: Virginia Chamber Orchestra

The Virginia Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1971 as a professional touring orchestra, traveling by bus to present performances in areas of Virginia where live orchestral concerts were not offered. In the early 1980's, the VCO established its base in Northern Virginia, delighting critics and drawing new audiences from suburban Virginia, Maryland, and the District of Columbia. Now, with the celebration of its fortieth anniversary, it is expanding the reach of its live concerts into Washington, DC. In addition, the orchestra has served a nationwide audience of millions with educational television broadcasts since 1998 and is now offering free streaming videos on its Web site.
