COSI – The Chamber Orchestra of St Ives.
We are so fortunate in St Ives to have our own very talented group of musicians, COSI, the Chamber Orchestra of St Ives.
Having been formed by a group of local musicians in 2004, COSI has thrived ever since under the baton of Chris Hiscock. The orchestra performs 2 – 3 concerts a year in the Free Church, St Ives and has raised money for numerous charitable causes
COSI’s inaugural concert was ‘Words and Music for a Summer Evening’ for the St Ives Music and Arts festival 2004 and since then have performed works ranging from traditional chamber music to popular classics to lively ‘Last Night at the Proms’ style concerts, often in association with FESt (Festival Events St Ives).
So FESt are very happy that their first event for 2015 should be supporting the Chamber Orchestra of St Ives. Thank you to The St Ives Town Council for their sponsorship of this event.
