Mission Statement

Teaching Children the language of music

Description

The Children's Orchestra Society, founded in 1962 by Dr. H. T. Ma, is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to "teaching children the language of music", and to presenting these young musicians in orchestra and chamber music concerts with their peers and well-established artists. Under the leadership of Executive Director Dr. Yeou-Cheng Ma and Music Director Michael Dadap, COS has, since 1984, held a firm belief in a child's innate capability to learn and develop musical talent of the highest level when nurtured in a supportive environment. With this vision, enormous support of its board members, and the hard work of its talented faculty and staff, COS has grown from an 18-member ensemble to more than 200 members comprising of four orchestras, a chamber music department, musicianship classes, and private lessons in piano, guitar and all orchestral instruments. Its most advanced orchestra, the Young Symphonic Ensemble, has presented annual concerts at Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall and, in more recent years, Carnegie Hall since the establishment of the Discovery Concert Series in 1994. It has also toured numerous North American cities as well as the Far East and the United Kingdom.
