ST. LUKE'S CHAMBER ENSEMBLE
Daire FitzGerald and Stephen Taylor, Co-Directors of Chamber Music
Founded in 1974, the St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble consists of 20 virtuoso artists dedicated to the mastery of a diverse repertoire spanning the Baroque to the contemporary. The Ensemble is also the artistic core of the Orchestra of St. Luke's, America's foremost chamber orchestra and a unique musical organization that currently comprises the orchestra, the chamber ensemble, and the St. Luke’s Arts Education Program. St. Luke’s currently performs approximately 100 orchestral, chamber, and educational concerts throughout New York each year, all showcasing the hallmark collaborative spirit that has garnered consistent critical acclaim for vibrant music-making of the highest order.
The St. Luke’s Chamber Ensemble presents three annual series: programs of varied chamber repertoire at The Morgan Library & Museum and Brooklyn Museum.
The Orchestra of St. Luke’s evolved from the Chamber Ensemble and was founded at the Caramoor International Music Festival in 1979. In addition to being presented by Carnegie Hall in an annual series in the Isaac Stern Auditorium, the Orchestra continues a 20-year collaborative relationship with Carnegie Hall that currently includes participation in such Carnegie events as the Choral Workshop, Family Concerts, and concert presentations of musical theater. The Orchestra is also engaged throughout the year in a number of artistic collaborations with other New York City cultural organizations, and serves each summer as the Orchestra-in-Residence at the Caramoor Festival. OSL musicians also participate in the St. Luke’s Arts Education Program, which integrates comprehensive in-school workshops and residencies with free performances for over 12,000 New York City school children annually.
