The Bombay Chamber Orchestra Society was founded in 1962 as an educational trust, primarily to offer free coaching to the young musical talent of the city in the techniques of orchestral playing and its aim is, not only to offer free music education, but also to create an environment and incentive to encourage young talent to continue to work at the instruments of their choice. Several young students who made their performing debuts with the orchestra have established themselves in successful careers as professional musicians throughout the world.
Since its formation in 1962, the Bombay Chamber Orchestra (BCO) has regaled Mumbai audiences with regular performances of a variety of works from the vast classical repertoire. The orchestra is listed in several international directories of orchestras. It performs 5-6 concerts a year in Mumbai, often in collaboration with international guest conductors and soloists, and has also performed in Sri Lanka and several other cities in India. The BCO has the distinction of being the only symphony orchestra in India which performs regularly with a concert standard of performance. The orchestra’s concerts have been received with acclaim from both, audiences and critics, wherever it has performed. Visiting musicians are only too happy to work with the BCO and the Society regularly receives requests from overseas musicians and conductors to come to India and perform with the orchestra. Some of the eminent musicians and musical companies who have performed with the orchestra include: pianists Walter Gieseking, Kendall Taylor and Piers Lane; violinists Lord Yehudi Menuhin, Nigel Kennedy, Christina Edinger, Bijan Khadem Missagh and Leon Spierer; the Verdehr Trio, the Sadlers Wells Ballet Company and the Viennese Light Operatic Company.
