Founded in 1958 by a group of London musicians as a "from-the-ground-up" orchestra, the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields became one of the most lauded and recorded ensembles in history. From among its members was formed the Academy's Chamber Orchestra, varied combinations performing quintets to octets. The ensemble's Chamber Music Columbus program features selections from Rossini, Mozart and Schubert.
