Participate Collage

When we call ourselves a “Community Orchestra,” we mean it. The orchestra is made up of members of the community, financially supported by members of the community, and performances are attended by members of the community. We’re an extended family of musicians, both members and guests, some professional, some amateur, all cordial. Periodically, we invite guest musicians to play for the orchestra. If you would like to be added to the short-list of invitees, please contact us at
