Founded in 2018 by internationally renowned cellist Amit Peled, Mount Vernon Virtuosi is a chamber orchestra based in Baltimore, Maryland. Comprised of seventeen string players, the orchestra provides a place of artistic growth for young musicians on the brink of their professional careers. The orchestra performs for audiences of all ages through exceptional performances and community engagement activities throughout the Baltimore and Washington DC region.

Beyond regular season concerts in the Baltimore/Washington area, Mount Vernon Virtuosi has toured throughout the East Coast and records exclusively for the CTM Classics recording label. The orchestra’s first recording, “Mozart Live” was released in 2019.

Through the generous contributions of dedicated individuals, all regular season performances at Bender JCC, including the Family Concerts, are presented free of charge.

This season we will be offering 3 different concerts for your enjoyment.
