“What I enjoy most about directing the BCCO—from our very first rehearsal of each new season—is the warmth, camaraderie, and deep trust that grows among us all as we explore music by the world’s great classical composers.” -Dorothy Savitch, Musical Director of BCCO

The Brooklyn Conservatory Community Orchestra is a passionate and diverse group of dedicated amateur and professional musicians that performs the great masterpieces of the orchestral repertoire to contemporary works by living composers. Now in its 20th year, this 60-member ensemble is composed of players from all walks of life, from your child’s middle school art teacher to a law professor or your local barista. Open by audition to adult orchestral musicians from intermediate to advanced levels, the BCCO presents four to six concerts for the community throughout the year, including a popular family concert performed at the Brooklyn Museum.

BKCM offers a wide range of ensembles for students of all ages and experience levels. Students are motivated to practice repertoire outside of class and encouraged by their peers to take on new challenges. Taught by experts in the field, our ensembles include performance opportunities and a chance to connect with a community of other instrumentalists who are interested in developing their artistry. Students enrolled in our private lessons are eligible to join many ensembles at a highly reduced rate. Contact our registration desk for more information.
