immerse yourself in an ensemble tailored to improve your performing and technical skills
As we emerge from two years of lockdown and many months without opportunities to see or hear live performances, the Portland Community Orchestra is presenting its first concert since March 2020! Our Saturday, June 11 (7:00pm) performance will feature music by Telemann, Albinoni, Sibelius, and others, as well as works by Ukrainian composers Mykola Lysenko, Wassyl Barwinskyj, Mykola Leontovych and others, to raise funds for Ukrainian relief efforts. See our 2022 Performance Schedule for more information about this upcoming concert and more!
PCO rehearsals take place every Tuesday from
5:30-7:30pm at Trinity Episcopal Church (580 Forest Ave,
Portland). During the summer we may go outdoors at
either Fort Allen Park (Eastern Promenade), Evergreen
Cemetery, or Payson Park. A series of eight intensive
rehearsals prepares each of our concert
performances. Please check out the PCO Member
Handbook for information on musician expectations, sheet music,
attendance, performance etiquette and membership fees.
Members of PCO come from all walks of life and a wide
variety of musical backgrounds. It provides a unique
musical experience to those who are interested and ready
for the challenges of playing great music with other
musicians. Please spend a few moments meeting the people
who make the PCO what it is.
PCO rehearsals take place Tuesdays from 5:30-7:30pm at
Trinity Episcopal Church, 580 Forest Avenue, Portland, or
