ECHO's Music Director is renowned Argentinean conductor Daniel Canosa. Canosa has led orchestras in Argentina, the United States, and Europe. He is the artistic director and conductor of the Apollo Symphony Orchestra, the music director of Marin Baroque, and an active guest conductor with the Veridian Symphony and the Camilla Symphony Orchestra, among others.

Soprano Wendy Loder has delighted San Francisco Bay Area opera audiences with her vivid portrayals of Adele, Blonde, Cunegonde, Gilda, Queen of the Night, The Vixen, and Zerbinetta. Wendy has been featured as soloist in Orff's Carmina Burana at Davies Symphony Hall, Mahler’s 8th Symphony, Poulenc’s Gloria and Mozart’s Great Mass. This past fall she sang with the San Francisco Opera Orchestra in a reading of Gordon Getty’s new opera, “The Canterville Ghost.”

The Berkeley Choro Ensemble (pronounced "shoro"), is a group of world-class musicians from the SF Bay Area. The group celebrates the music, culture and history of Brazil, with a special emphasis on the Choro genre, a style of music which emerged in the 1800's in Brazil, fusing the music of Brazil's European immigrants and the native music of Brazil's indigenous and African-Brazilian population.

Felipe Senna graduated in Composition and Conducting by the State University of São Paulo (2002). He has performed as music director, arranger and pianist with Toquinho, Claudete Soares, Grammy winner Airton Moreira and Grammy nominees Nailor Proveta and Filó Machado. His transcription of Villa-Lobos Fantasy “Momoprecoce” (2009) is becoming a standard in Brazilian´s symphonic band repertoire. Felipe Senna recently premiered his “Concertino à la Brésilienne” in France and his “Chrysalis - Narrative for Cello Solo and Images” in London at the Digital Shoreditch Festival.

ECHO’s concerts are an intimate and family-friendly event. A complimentary wine reception with musicians will be held immediately following the performance.
