We are currently planning our 20th anniversary season and look forward to welcoming our students in September of 2020!
The safety of our young musicians is our priority and we are closely monitoring health recommendations from WA State Dept. of Health.
It's that time of the year when many members of our community generously contribute to the orchestra through OCFA. 100% of your donations go directly to the orchestra. OCFA funds account for 25 to 30% of the orchestra operating budget. We can't do it without you! Click on the icon above to be taken directly to our dedicated donation portal. We are so thankful for this community and OCFA!
