The Greenwich Village Orchestra was formed by local musicians in 1986 — it’s been going strong for over 25 years. Yet, it has remained a bit of a secret while those who’ve experienced it have given it rave reviews. The Orchestra’s goal: “total commitment to performance, world class soloists, low ticket prices, and continued commitment to our local, downtown community.” Comprised of “accountants, actors, artists, attorneys, carpenters, editors, physicians, professors, programmers, retirees,
riverboat gamblers, scientists, secretaries, students, and teachers,” the group is “committed to making music at the highest possible level.”
