Meet the Orchestra

Since the BCSO is not able at this time to share live performances with our community, we are pleased to share with you our personal stories and why playing in this orchestra is so meaningful to us.

One of the unique aspects of the BCSO is our foundation as a community orchestra, filled with many musicians who have not pursued careers in music, but who have found playing with their fellow music lovers to be both a relaxing and stimulating experience week after week.

We hope you enjoy this series of short video presentations and personal anecdotes in which players express how their passion for music intersects their professional and personal lives.

Please visit this site regularly for the latest video and narrative postings. We hope that you find our musicians’ messages to be enlightening and inspiring.
