Inscape Chamber Orchestra

Bethesda, MD         

Founded in 2004 by Artistic Director Richard Scerbo, Inscape performs concerts that aim to engage audiences and provide a compelling way to explore both standard and non-standard works.  With its flexible roster of musicians, Inscape programs explore a variety of styles.  Praised by The Washington Post for their “guts and musical sensitivity,” Inscape’s energetic concerts are well-established in the Washington DC region and continue to garner praise from audiences and critics alike.  

Inscape has worked joyously and often with emerging American composers and has a commitment to presenting concerts featuring the music of our time.  Since its inception, Inscape has commissioned and premiered over twenty new works.


 Inscape members regularly perform with the National, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Virginia, Richmond, and Delaware symphonies, the Washington Opera Orchestra, and are members of the premiere Washington service bands.  Former Inscape performers are members of orchestras across the United States and abroad. 

Inscape regularly performs as the Ensemble-in-Residence at The Episcopal Church of the Redeemer in Bethesda, Maryland, as well as at the National Gallery of Art, Strathmore Music Center, and other local and national venues.


 Inscape records exclusively for Dorian Sono Luminus. Their exciting debut album Sprung Rhythm, a collection of six world premiere works by three emerging young composers, was released to critical acclaim in July 2013 and is nominted for a GRAMMY in the Best Surround Sound Album category.
