The McGill Chamber Orchestra (MCO) is one of Canada’s most established chamber orchestras. It was founded in 1939 by Artistic Director Alexander Brott and his wife, Lotte Brott, cellist and General Manager till 1998. The orchestra began as the McGill String Quartet and soon thereafter grew into an ensemble which had as its members principal teachers of the McGill Conservatory of Music and eventually principal players in the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal where Alexander Brott served as Concertmaster and Lotte played in the cello section. The orchestra was quickly recognized as an ensemble of international standing.
In 1989, Boris Brott joined the orchestra as Associate Conductor and, in 2000, he was appointed co-conductor of the orchestra. On the death of his father in 2005, he was appointed Artistic Director of the MCO.
