When & Where
Adelphi Chamber Orchestra
The Adelphi Chamber Orchestra is the oldest chamber orchestra in Bergen County and Northern New Jersey has lived up to its statement of purpose, i.e., "to foster good music." From its first concert performed for the public on May 23, 1953, the Orchestra has met its goal offering three or more stimulating musical programs each year while maintaining high standards of musicianship and directing by many outstanding permanent or guest conductors. Encouragement over the years has been given to numerous talented young musicians in the form of scholarships and for the opportunity to play or solo with the Orchestra. Contributions and grants have defrayed operational costs making concert admissions free to the public. 1952 a few local, talented string players and pianists banded together to play duets, trios and quartets for enjoyment. They met at Roy and Ella Schmidt’s music studio in Maywood, New Jersey. Within a brief span, their repertoire included performances of quintets, octets and small orchestral pieces.As the orchestra grew, it moved to the Central Unitarian Church.The Orchestra now performs in our new home at the River Dell Regional Middle School and rehearse at the Englewood Hospital Medical Center.Musicians from the Adelphi Chamber Orchestra can be heard at various libraries in Bergen County. The Adelphi Chamber Orchestra was the recipient of a Bergen County Arts Grant since 2006 and received a certificate of commendation in recognition of its constant commitment and dedication to the residents and communities in Bergen County.The mission of the Adelphi remains as it was in 1953, to foster the enjoyment and understanding of fine music.Over the decades, the Adelphi has been directed by a number of distinguished conductors. The orchestra, is unique in that it still presents free concerts. As a public service, the Adelphi has given concerts at the Actor’s Fund Home in Englewood and the Cupola in Ridgewood.
To maintain an orchestra of high artistic quality, the Adelphi Chamber Orchestra attracts and retains the region’s best professional freelance musicians. Sinfonia musicians come from all over the region. Most have graduate degrees from major universities or conservatories, and many have prestigious private teaching studios.
The Sinfonia performs both classical and chamber music concert programs, all free of charge and open to the public. Concert sites include River Dell Regional Public Schools, Pascack Valley Pubic School District, WestSide Presbyterian Church, Public Libraries in Teaneck, Mahwah, and Warren New Jersey and Senior Centers in Riverdale New Jersey.
Every year, the Adelphi Chamber Orchestra plays up to 8 free-admission concerts and features award-winning national and international guest soloists.
Open to All
The Adelphi Chamber Orchestra is committed to reaching underserved populations, especially nontraditional concertgoers. Since it was formed in 1953, the orchestra has continually striven to eliminate barriers that have kept people from attending orchestra concerts.To remove the most obvious barrier to the arts, the cost of tickets, the Adelphi offers all concerts free of admission charges. To serve families and children who feel unwelcome at formal events, the Adelphi creates a family-friendly atmosphere at every concert, and always encourages parents to bring their children. To reach people unable to commute, the chamber ensemble travels to accessible community locations, allowing citizens to enjoy quality orchestral music in their own neighborhoods. And to reach those who suspect orchestral music is stuffy, the Adelphi programs a variety of concert formats, some classical, and some especially for young children. All concerts are characterized by an informal atmosphere, and welcoming, enthusiastic energy from the musicians and conductor.
