About APEX Ensemble

APEX Ensemble (The Montclair Orchestra) was founded in 2016 as an unprecedented learning environment for top music conservatory students, with training and performance alongside professional mentors from some of the world’s leading orchestras. The flagship Fellowship Orchestra is led by Music Director David Chan, who also serves as Concertmaster of New York’s Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, and has won accolades for its “pinpoint coordination, mature musical insight, and irresistible esprit that would be the envy of many a big-city symphony” (New York Classical Review).
