International Chamber Orchestra of America (ICOA): Based in New York City, the International Chamber Orchestra of America (ICOA) brings together elite young musicians from top conservatories in the East Coast. They believe music is an universal language that enriches and transcends lives; and this bliss belongs to everyone regardless of their socioeconomic backgrounds. They strive for connecting classical music to a broader, more diverse public—from sophisticated listener to curious newcomers.
Meng-Chieh Liu (Soloist): A recipient of the 2002 Avery Fisher Career Grant. His acclaimed performance was followed by a number of widely praised appearances, including a recital at the Kennedy Center.
