Central Oregon Symphony Orchestra

Volunteers from across the region bond together to create the 70-member Central Oregon Symphony Orchestra. Members range from retired professional concert musicians to high school students to regular folks like a pilot and a hair stylist, but they put on a great show, bringing classical music to the people of central Oregon.
