This is not your grandmother’s classical music. The Rendez-Vous Orchestra is a New York City based string orchestra founded on the principles of experimentation and collaboration. It combines the drama of the classical music tradition with the improvisational nature of jazz. Performing original music by director, Brian Shaheen, the orchestra transforms unconventional spaces into venues for its music. We also pride ourselves on the diversity of our members, drawing on all the different talents New York City has to offer.

Children’s Suite, Movement I: Footsteps in the Dark
