The Orchestra of the Bronx

5 Minerva Place, 2J
Bronx, NY 10468


Our Mission:

Our concerts are free of charge, enabling people of all walks of life to experience the profound beauty of the orchestral repertoire.

About Us:

The Orchestra of The Bronx is a fully professional orchestra made up of some of the finest instrumentalists emerging in the New York area as well as those who are well established in the musical life of the City. Michael Spierman, the organization’s Music Director chooses soloists based not only on their facility, but on the depth of their artistry. The unique spirit and level of excellence of this orchestra makes for some of the most exciting concerts presented in the New York City area.

Our History:

Founded in 1972 as the Bronx Chamber Orchestra, the ensemble gave many outstanding concerts throughout the borough, from Riverdale to the South Bronx. Over the past several years the organization has undergone a metamorphosis, resulting in an even fuller sound, a wider range of repertoire, and culminating in a change to its current name in 1999.

Where We Perform:

Its present home, Lehman College’s beautiful Lovinger Theatre, is centrally located and affords its audiences easy access via subway (the 4 and D lines), bus and car (with abundant free parking available).


Michael Spierman conducts attractive and satisfying programs including some of the most beloved works in the orchestral repertoire. The orchestra performs works from all periods including Baroque, Classical, Romantic and 20th Century.
