The Winchester Orchestra

Under the direction of Michael DiGiacinto, every concert is an energetic exploration in music, providing comfort and challenge for the members and listener.

The Winchester Orchestra of San Jose presents the traditional symphonic repertoire along side compelling contemporary works. Programs that feature pairings like Luciano Berio’s Folk Songs with the Nutcracker expands the musical vocabulary of both the musician and listener, while offering a entertaining experience.

This inherent curiosity has led to the orchestra to explore opportunities that enriches the cultural life of the Silicon Valley.

The orchestra is known for supporting the many talented local artists and has recently inaugurated a Young Artist Competion in collaboration with the Mission College Symphony. Soloing with an orchestra is an important milestone for a young performer.

Our musical outreach offers diversity in programming, from chamber groups in the community, to a conductor exchange, programming works by local composers.

Your contributions make this work possible for a group of your peers who are passionate musicians.

Please say ‘hi’ and let us know that you supported us on SVGives day.
