With an emphasis on living composers who continue to score music for traditional orchestral instruments, the Peabody Modern Orchestra highlights important trends of the present and recent past that challenge the way we play, hear, and appreciate music. The size and composition of the ensemble varies depending upon repertoire requirements, and may sometimes involve non-traditional instruments and techniques. PMO will also participate in some student composition readings.
The Peabody Modern Orchestra performs under the baton of Harlan D. Parker. Recorded March 6, 2015.
