The Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma della Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Roma (Rome Symphony Orchestra) was officialy founded in November 2002 from a vocational training course which lasted almost one year. The orchestra is one of the few symphony orchestras in the world that is privately funded, it is financed only by the Foundation. Under the conductor, Maestro Francesco La Vecchia, the Orchestra numbers 65 instrumentalists, most of whom are under the age of 30, and many of which are recognised soloists.
For the first two seasons the Orchestra performed at the Teatro Argentina of Rome giving 160 concerts with approximately 80 different programmes. This earned the orchestra recognition from the press, and from the audience, who guaranteed sell out performances.
Many prestigious names have collaborated with the Orchestra including Coro della Scala di Milano, London Symphony Chorus, Paul Badura-Skoda, Bruno Canino, Mischa Maisky, Shlomo Mintz, Aldo Ciccolini and many more.
