Founded in 2007, the orchestra's mission is to take the audience beyond spectatorship to participation in the artistic experience.  Based in Philadelphia, the BPCO is the first world-class professional orchestra to reflect the cultural diversity of the Delaware Valley region.

The BPCO's concert programming connects countries, cultures and communities in exciting ways. Through creative use of technology,  groundbreaking educational programs and collaborative partnerships with the city's most prominent education and cultural institutions, the BPCO is attracting newcomers and enchanting classical music aficionados alike.  The Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra is proving that when the arts deeply engage a community, that community will enthusiastically participate in the arts.
