    The very survival and evolution of classical music within a fast-paced, cosmopolitan environment such as New York requires a dynamic balance of novelty, tradition, and hard work. It was with this vision in mind that the Salomé Chamber Orchestra, New York City’s new conductor-less string ensemble, was founded in September 2009 by the Carpenter siblings (violinists Sean and Lauren and violist David). As a 501c3 organization and one of the preeminent orchestras in the U.S., Salomé collaborates with other non-profit organizations in raising awareness for their philanthropy and broadening the audience of classical music. To date, the orchestra has performed at venues around Manhattan including Steinway Hall, Carnegie Hall, Barge Music, Christie’s, MILK Studios, and the MET Museum; on NPR's Performance Today; and on National Television. Salomé has collaborated with leading soloists, including guitarist Sharon Isbin and violist David Aaron Carpenter, with 2012-2013 performances slated with Alan Gilbert, Christoph Eschenbach, Joshua Bell, Philippe Quint, Daniel Hope, Karen Gomyo, Helene Grimaud, and Rufus Wainwright. Also, Salomé has partnered with notable non-profit organizations from around the world including The Trevor Project, FEED, Camfed, and The Somaly Mam Foundation. Salomé is based in Manhattan and consists of top-ranking graduates from The Curtis Institute of Music, The Julliard School, Manhattan School of Music, Princeton University, and Yale University.
