CCO is recruiting adults who play violin, viola, cello and bass to join the orchestra. Our members range from advanced beginners to confident soloists. Most of the music we play is arranged especially for us by our director, William Bauer, who finds interesting pieces that are challenging to everyone, but not overwhelming. Use the form below to tell us what instrument you play and we’ll respond promptly by email.
There are no auditions. We’ll invite you to a rehearsal, send you music and encourage you to play along with us. Our rehearsals are on Thursday evenings, at Salem United Methodist Church, Lindbergh at I-64 in Frontenac.
We never hold fundraisers or sell tickets, and all concerts are free. Orchestra members who can afford to do so make financial contributions, and we all contribute time and talent to give quality performances. CCO is funded by these donations from musicians as well as from other supporters, revenue from museum and library concerts, grants and corporate donations.
