The American Orchestra has performed more than 350 concerts since its inauguration tour in 2002, performing at various venues ranging from the prestigious concert halls of Europe, North and South America to outdoor venues, which is not often associated with symphonic music. His sound brings art through live performances, television projects, radio broadcasts, CD recordings, prints and documentaries.
