The International Chamber Orchestra of America (ICOA) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to building a sustainable community for extraordinary musicians who have come to New York City from around the world. We are committed to presenting performances of classical music of the highest quality, while challenging the idea of classical music as a strictly Western phenomenon. We represent the global face of classical music and provide opportunities for like-minded musicians to expand and redefine the boundaries of classical music.
A mission inspired by passion for classical music and fueled by an innovative spirit
The mission of the ICOA is to cultivate a new generation of music lovers by bridging the gap between western classical music and other art forms as well as other genres through collaboration.
