Orchestra New England: History & Mission

Orchestra New England (ONE) is one of the most versatile and exciting orchestras in America. The Orchestra is committed to quality and innovation, a commitment that has made its artistic achievements possible by generating and nurturing an unusual workplace and a remarkable orchestra.

Since its founding in 1974, Orchestra New England has presented over 700 concerts with a passion for excellence and signature enthusiasm. Most of these performances were presented at ONE’s home base at Yale’s Battell Chapel, with other engagements taking place in concert halls throughout New England and along the Eastern seaboard.

From its 1974 debut performance of an unpublished work by Charles Ives to its almost 150 performances of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker, ONE continues to set the standard for outstanding performances of both familiar and neglected works by Classical, Romantic and Modern composers.

ONE has made commercial recordings for such prestigious labels as Columbia Masterworks, CBS Masterworks, Delos, New World Records and Koch International Classics.
