 Gardner Chamber Orchestra (2 Albums, 6 Tracks)


Douglas Boyd, conductor

The resident orchestra of the Gardner Museum, the Gardner Chamber Orchestra performs several times each season at the museum, under the baton of oboist and conductor Douglas Boyd. The orchestra was founded in 1991 by music director Scott Nickrenz to bring music to the museum in the way that its founder, Isabella Stewart Gardner envisioned: supporting young artists and presenting concerts that integrate music and the artful environment of the Gardner Museum. Young musicians studying at colleges and conservatories throughout Boston are given the opportunity to play great music under the direction of distinguished artists, offering fresh, energetic performances for audiences while enhancing their own learning.

Conductor Douglas Boyd has led the group with co-artistic director Paula Robison since 2002. The virtuoso technique, musicality and charm that have made Boyd’s oboe performances and recordings favorites with listeners the world over are now also garnering him acclaim as a conductor. In addition to his post at the Gardner Museum, Boyd conducts the Manchester Camerata and City of London Sinfonia in England, and is an artistic partner at the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra in Minnesota. In July 2006, Boyd made his New York conducting debut at Avery Fisher Hall in the Mostly Mozart festival in a performance full of “celebratory drive” and “sweeping lines” (New York Times).
