After Darkness comes the light
Dec 12 @ 7.30PM EST
The TCO provides a welcoming atmosphere to musicians from all backgrounds. And no matter how hard we are working on a piece, there is always time for a little fun.
Enjoy a varied repertoire
Our repertoire is primarily classical but we also do some more contemporary works. Our repertoire team works hard to put together programs that are challenging yet manageable.
Meet new people
The TCO is a welcoming group for people of all backgrounds and professions united by our love of music. You will meet lots of new people and maybe make some new friends.
Giving back to the community
The TCO is an enthusiastic amateur orchestra run by volunteers. We perform two free concerts for the public per season at our main venue bringing the community together.
Keep your mind active
Studies have shown that playing a musical instrument increases brain and memory function at all ages. Maybe the same is true just by listening to music on a regular basis – who knows? Actually, did you know that Einstein was an avid music enthusiast?
George Bernard Shaw said it best: “You use a glass mirror to see your face. You use works of art to see your soul.” Playing in an orchestra is a great way to build your creativity and express yourself -and if you come out to listen, we will share a piece our soul with you.
Relax & unwind
Although we work hard during our rehearsals, many of us look forward to coming to the orchestra every week as a way to escape the day-to-day and enjoy the time to focus on the music.
We work hard all season long so that we can take our audience on a captivating musical journey on concert night!
Just because we are a largely non-auditioned group and most of us are amateurs doesn’t mean we only play easy pieces. Joining us sure is a commitment, but it’s oh so worth it.
Be part of a team
One of the most magical moments as an orchestra musician is when you hear everything coming together as one. It is a team effort that results in something bigger than just the sum of individual parts. Performing in front of an audience makes it even more special!
Playing an instrument is rewarding, but it also requires a lot of work and dedication. Playing in an orchestra can help with finding motivation to practice regularly and expand your repertoire.
Seeing a big audience at our concerts is so rewarding for each of us – and goes a long way in carrying you through rehearsing that next difficult section.
