The Eclectic Laboratory Chamber Orchestra seeks to demolish preconceived notions about music by presenting a repertoire spanning from the Middle Ages to present day. Utilizing the medium of the chamber orchestra, E.L.C.O. explores connections between diverse musical genres and traditions by promoting a broad range of repertoire that includes modern classical music, new interpretations of older classical works, and original orchestral arrangements of rock and pop compositions. The core E.L.C.O. ensemble consists of young professional orchestral musicians in collaboration with up-and-coming opera and rock vocalists.
