Artist Spotlight: Cordancia

Cordancia is a Rochester-based chamber orchestra. Their innovative programming juxtaposes unexplored and less familiar repertoire from all time periods with more traditional classical music, to create illuminating thought-inspiring perspectives. Cordancia’s full 40-member ensemble offers a concert season of 8-10 performances including collaborations with choral ensembles and dance organizations. Cordancia’s educational programs feature five of the orchestra’s musicians performing as a quintet consisting of Kathleen Suher (oboe), Pia Liptak (violin), Keiko Vann (viola), John Delmonico (cello) and Yi-Wen Chang (piano). The quintet has presented children’s programs at the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival and in many area schools. The group has collaborated with artists such as actress Judy Molner, song-writer and story-teller Doug Waterman, and currently is working with Rochester storyteller, the legendary Jay Stetzer!
