Community orchestra forming

Musicians invited to participate


An opportunity to practice and perform with a community orchestra in Bend will soon become a reality. 

Brass, woodwinds, percussion and strings will make up the orchestra.

All levels of ability are encouraged to join.  If you haven't played an instrument in a while or are looking for a new opportunity to play with other musicians, you're invited to join.  All are welcome and auditions are not required. 

The Community Orchestra of Central Oregon season will be from September to June. A monthly membership fee will be charged to cover expenses for the conductor, rehearsal space and music.

Rehearsals will be held weekly, with two to three performances a year. A meeting location and time of rehearsals will soon be announced. A conductor has been chosen to lead the orchestra.

The organizing committee for the orchestra came about by newcomers to Bend teaming up with longterm resident musicians who shared the strong desire for a community orchestra experience for nonprofessional musicians.
