Celebrating over 40 Years of Bringing Great Classical Music to the Upper West Side

Welcome to our concerts and our community.

Since 1971, the talented musicians of the Riverside Orchestra have delighted thousands of classical music lovers through our regular Upper West Side concerts.

We are a community of players who love music, a love shared by our loyal audience.

We are proud to have served as the training grounds for so many emerging conductors and honored by our collaborations with amazing soloists, often members of the New York Philharmonic.

We are famous for our parties after each concert (included in the ticket price) -- one of the best deals of New York City!

Announcing the first concert and party of our 2014-5 Season!

Church of the Blessed Sacrament,

We are delighted to welcome back conductor Reuben Blundell, the conductor of our concert last June. We will perform Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 (“Eroica”) and Poulenc’s rarely performed Concerto for Organ, Timpani, and Strings with Gregory D’Agostino, Organist and Director of Music at the Church of the Blessed Sacrament. We played the Poulenc last 30 years ago, so don’t miss this performance!
