The Chappaqua Orchestra was founded 45 years ago by a small group of musicians and music lovers, among them Dr. Boris Koutzen, the distinguished violinist, teacher, and composer, who quickly agreed to take up the baton. The February 7, 1959 premiere performance firmly established the orchestra's reputation for musical excellence. On stage were a baker, a lawyer, a doctor, a stockbroker, a minister, an artist, a postman, homemakers, music teachers and professional musicians, all of them exceptional performers.

Hailed as "The Jewel of New Castle", The Chappaqua Orchestra has served northern Westchester since 1958. Now under the baton of Michael Shapiro, the orchestra will play diverse and challenging programs. The Chappaqua Orchestra has grown into a sophisticated ensemble of professional level artists.

Many notable artists have been associated with TCO over the years, including Joseph Fuchs, Julius Baker, Chee Yun, Allison Eldredge, Ruth Laredo, Eugenia Zukerman, Leslie Parnas, Andrew Litton, Lucie Arnaz, and Vanessa Williams. TCO also has a proud history of collaboration with young soloists who later went on to stardom, many of them proteges of longtime Music Director Norman Leyden, who also conducted the Westchester County Youth Orchestra.
