New Orchestra of Washington

The New Orchestra of Washington’s mission is to make music relevant to new generations of audiences through virtuosic performances that combine a diversity of genres with fresh interpretations of classic works. Unconstrained by the structure or repertoire of traditional orchestras, NOW is both modern and sustainable, proving how orchestral and chamber music can not only survive but flourish in the 21st century. Founded in 2012 by rising stars of the Washington area’s professional community, NOW embodies mutual respect and admiration for each other’s artistry and a common belief in the importance of revitalizing the role of music in our lives.
