While the Olin Conductorless Orchestra (OCO) generally plays music that has been reorchestrated to fit its instrumentation, almost everything OCO plays was originally intended for a different type of orchestra than our own. Some music is meant for small, 5piece chamber groups. Other music is meant for large, 150 member orchestras. Nearly all our music was intended to be guided by a single conductor, rather than by the collective listening and movements of the group. Phoenix Flight, in contrast, is an original composition created specifically to highlight the unique aspects of Olin’s Conductorless Orchestra.
