Mark your calendars for what looks to be two very exciting concerts this spring. There is no ticket required. Admission is free, a suggested donation of $10 is greatly appreciated.
The Vero Beach Chamber Orchestra, directed by Colbert Page Howell, was formed to provide for the cultural enrichment of Indian River County by presenting two free concerts each year. The group is composed of an assortment of local musicians, ranging from high school students to seasoned professionals.
A truly unique gem in the cultural community of Indian River County, the Vero Beach Chamber Orchestra’s early history began with a pile of new violins and a crew of curious students
interested in figuring them out. Inspiration, vision, and a great entrepreneurial sense led the group’s founder, Tom Fritz, a local music store owner and teacher, to move quickly to recruit more experienced players, including an extraordinary concertmaster/teacher/ and coach in Matt Stott, and an experienced conductor, Colbert Page Howell, to what was rapidly evolving into a real community orchestra.
Now, twelve years later, the Vero Beach Chamber Orchestra is the “real deal”. With members ranging from professional musicians to accomplished non-professionals to excellent student players, the group occupies an unusual and highly respected position in the community. Tom Fritz’s carefully curated vision of positive symbiotic relationships between adults and students, players and teachers, and performers and audiences prevails. The group performs standard classical literature twice a year to appreciative and complimentary audiences, and then donates the music to the school’s string library. A portion of the proceeds are donated back to the student members in the form of awards as they go off to college. It is a unique and inspiring synergy where non-professionals can work with professionals, students with adults, and all can share in the inspiration and joy of performing great music well, for themselves and for the community!
