The Eos Ensemble, founded by violinist Craig Reiss, is an exciting chamber music group comprised mainly of members of the San Francisco Opera orchestra. The goal of the group is to present concerts of wide ranging musical styles and instrumental combinations. We offer the opportunity to hear these talented musicians rise from the pit to the stage, playing everything from Beethoven to Ligeti. Audiences throughout the Bay Area have been thrilled to experience the artistry normally reserved for the grand canvas of opera transformed to the intimacy of chamber music. The Eos Ensemble has received grants from Music Performance Trust Fund and KIDDO! to present educational concerts in the Mill Valley schools. They also recently performed on the national radio broadcast “West Coast Live.” San Francisco Classical Voice said, “Every little detail was perfectly in place and meticulously balanced… They played with genuine depth and power.”
