About the Orchestra

We value music, musicians, and community

The Olympia Chamber Orchestra is a group of local musicians who play music suited for a smaller orchestra, opera or ballet orchestras, and chamber music.


There are about 40 musicians at any one time and each year we play at least 5 concerts.

The Olympia Chamber Orchestra has an active artistic partnership with St. Martin's University and the Music Department Chair, Darrell Born; St. Martin's provides rehearsal space to us, and we provide rehearsal time for their conducting students, and music for graduation.
