- The World Orchestra for Peace was founded in 1995 by Sir Georg Solti to reaffirm, in his words, "the unique strength of music as an ambassador for peace." Led by Valery Gergiev, the orchestra is an ensemble of the finest musicians selected from the world's greatest orchestras (most are concertmasters or section principals in their own ensembles), including several members of the CSO. Designated a UNESCO Artist for Peace in 2010, this all-star team is united with reigning royalty from the international opera stage and host Lady Solti for a spectacular celebration in honor of Sir Georg's 100th birthday. Please note: This concert will be performed without an intermission.
