Lawyers Trade Briefs for Bach

The Lawyers’ Orchestra of the New York City Bar Association, founded in 1996 by lawyer and oboist David Greenwald, played its last concert on June 21st at Fordham University. The orchestra has performed three major concerts a year, sponsored monthly Friday evening chamber music performances at the City Bar, and even dropped its hourly fees to give free concerts to residents at nursing homes and hospitals around the city.

Given the pressure cooker of its members’ work day, the orchestra has also been a creative outlet for lawyers happy to trade their legal briefs for Bach, memoranda for Mozart.
