Our fourth annual holiday concert, complete with short performances by our SuperStrings, Preparatory, Debut, Sinfonia, and Senior PACO orchestras plus our giant PACO Holiday Orchestra in Peter Warlock's classic Capriol Suite.
Our guest stars this year are the four amazing string players of the Squid, Inc. Quartet, an exciting crossover ensemble that has been thrilling Bay Area audiences for a decade with their adventurous programming and kinetic performances.
We are also excited about the return of our favorite dancers from Pacific Ballet Academy, joining PACO players in highlights from Tchaikovsky's beloved Nutcracker Suite.
The Palo Alto Chamber Orchestra (PACO) is an award-winning youth orchestra for regional string musicians of high-school age and younger. The emphasis on chamber music uniquely sets PACO apart from other youth orchestras in the Bay Area and the nation and lies at the core of our educational success.
PACO’s most experienced ensembles are available to perform at weddings, parties, graduations, and wherever else beautiful music is needed. Each group is meticulously coached by our staff, and will enliven any gathering.
