Young Musicians Concerto Competition Winners

Featuring the winners of the joint California Association of Professional Music Teachers (District VIII) and Junior Chamber Music Young Musicians Concerto Competition. With middle- and high-school student soloists hailing from Orange and Los Angeles Counties, it promises to be a stunning evening of music.

Romantic Chamber Music

Featuring a small group of OCofOC members in an intimate setting. Listen to “the music of music of friends” with a view of lush coastal gardens.

Orchestra Series

When bigger really is bigger. The namesake of the group derives from the Greek ὀρχήστρα, the name for the area in front of the stage in ancient Greece reserved for the Greek chorus. This is where every group plays in loving harmony, strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion, and often keyboards, sometimes even guitar! 

Outdoor Summer Chamber Music

Food, Drink, and Chamber Music. For something a little different, each summer we have a pop-up extravaganza. It will be a multi-course, multi-movement Summer evening of musical and culinary delight!
