New Music Chamber Orchestra of the South Bay

Apr 9, 2022

For the 40th anniversary of the renown Chamber Orchestra of the South Bay (Dr. Frances Steiner, director), Maffe has accepted a double commission. The first will be a world premiere of a new work for strings, harp, and piano to be performed on November 13th, the second will be a film music-themed piece to be performed in spring of 2023.


About the orchestra:

"For 39 years, the COSB has been a beacon of classical music in the South Bay. A fully professional orchestra, it is the resident classical orchestra of Palos Verdes Performing Arts at the Norris Theatre and the only orchestra in the South Bay offering a full season with nationally and internationally-recognized soloists.


Maffe reacts, "There really is nothing that can compare to live music, being in the collaboration with so many professional musicians is a humbling experience, and I hope I can do the ensemble justice for their forty-year milestone."
