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 we play at least 5 concerts each season.
The Olympia Chamber Orchestra has an active artistic partnership with St. Martin's University and the Music Department. We regularly collaborate with SMU for choral-orchestral works. Recent performances include Vivaldi's Gloria, Beethoven's Choral Fantasy, "Spring" from The Seasons by Haydn, and Mozart's Coronation Mass.
