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.

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?

Express yourself

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!

Challenge youself

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!

Stay motivated

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.
