Chamber Orchestra (05:25)


Chamber orchestras require musicians to set aside individual achievement for group success. Pinchas Zukerman is a well-known violinist, who has been performing since he was a child. Every year, he goes to St. Paul, Minnesota to direct the chamber orchestra.

Musical Discipline (10:07)

Zukerman says musicians must have discipline to create or recreate musical beauty. The chamber orchestra has a common understanding that allows them to play well together. The conductor should not have full authority over the orchestra.

Musical Improvements (04:52)

A musician talks about focusing on small improvements in his performance. The feeling of achievement makes him never tire despite the endless hours of practice.

Feeling of Music (02:25)

Zukerman states that music is "inexplicable." Members of the chamber orchestra say music exists because sometimes words cannot be used to describe feelings and emotions.

Musical Performances (04:17)

The St. Paul Chamber Orchestra has 31 members; they can perform in smaller locations than most orchestras. They bring music to people who cannot make it to regular concert halls.
