With the New Orchestra of Washington, Alejandro Hernandez-Valdez continues to commission, record, and release premiere works for chamber orchestra. Both of these CD's are available online at Amazon.com and neworchestraofwashington.org.
Named after Handel’s opera, Acis and Galatea, Acis is a boutique label with a roster that boasts both emerging and Grammy-nominated classical artists. Acis receives consistent praise for capturing these artists with all the energy and flair of a live performance.
Acis’ founder, record producer and conductor Geoffrey Silver, hails from the UK where he trained in the choral tradition in London and Cambridge. An original founder member of GRAMMY-nominated New York Polyphony, and former chorus master of three-time nominated and two-time GRAMMY-winning ensemble The Washington Chorus, he has prepared choruses for Christoph Eschenbach, Daniele Callegari, Matthew Halls, Grant Gershon, Nicolas McGegan, Scott Tucker and Julian Wachner.
