CCO is recruiting adults who play violin, viola, cello and bass to join the orchestra. We do not have auditions. Those who are interested in joining are invited to try us out at a rehearsal. During the pandemic we’ve been safely spread out in a large studio with filtered air.
Our members range from advanced beginners to confident soloists. Much 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. We’ll invite you to a Thursday evening rehearsal, send you music and encourage you to play along with us.
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.
