Band Bio: The Ambitious Orchestra is the only orchestra dedicated to bringing rock and roll spirit back to classical music and virtuosity back to rock. We also specialize in creating original arrangements and orchestral backing for other artists.

he Ambitious Orchestra debuted on Halloween, 2004. Since then, they have been amazing crowds in New York's best venues, including Northsix, The Knitting Factory and Rothko's. The AO is currently working on their debut album, Shout, For the LORD has Given You the City!, due out 2006, and Ickies & Steve La Rosa are laying the groundwork for an original opera about Dungeons & Dragons, called Opera +1.
