The Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra has completed 16 seasons as the only professional orchestra in Michigan north of the 45th parallel. Since 2001, GLCO has offered to its audiences over 150 performances, including chamber music series concerts, educational concerts and outreach projects in local schools.
Dylana Jenson started playing violin at age 2. At the International Tchaikovsky Competition, she became the youngest and first American woman to win the Silver Medal at age 17. She made a Carnegie Hall debut playing the Sibelius Concerto with Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra, which launched her career
as a concert violinist.
David Lockington received his masters in cello performance from Yale University and served as assistant principal cellist of the Denver Symphony Orchestra before turning to conducting full time. He was the conductor of the Grand Rapids Symphony Orchestra for 14 years. He is Music Director of the Pasadena and Modesto Symphonies, and he has never stopped playing the cello.
