The BPCO's concert programming connects countries, cultures and communities in exciting ways. Through creative use of technology, groundbreaking
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.
