Discovery Ensemble in Concert

Discovery Ensemble, with Music Director Courtney Lewis, launched its fifth season at Jordan Hall in Boston.

Hear the concert, along with past performances, and learn more about the season:

Courtney LewisDiscovery Ensemble was founded with a dual mission: to present chamber orchestra concerts at the highest possible level of performance, and to take those performances into Boston's schools to invigorate the music education of children.

Artistic Director David St. George and Music Director Courtney Lewis have pursued that mission relentlessly, earning rave reviews and a devoted following in the process.

Classical New England was at Jordan Hall for this season's opening concert on Oct. 21. Hear the concert:
