Join the Concord Chamber Orchestra for the first concert of our 2017-18 season, “Profiles in Courage.” In each concert this season, we present works that honor heroes and courage in its many forms.

The United States is built on a rich legacy of heroes, legends, and idealists. Join the CCO and guest narrator Timothy Rebers for “Stars and Stripes: American Icons” on October 21 as we take a musical look at what it means to be an American.
