Welcome to Hood River

When you visit Hood River, you become part of something. Something that’s bigger than the town, or the mountains, or the rivers (and trust us, those things are all pretty impressive). You become part of our community. You’ll be welcomed by folks happy to share their local knowledge and a passion for not only their surroundings but their place in it. So whether you’re looking to immerse yourself in our natural beauty, or simply get a taste for the lifestyle, Hood River is the place for you.

We look forward to seeing you when you get here because…You’re Our People.

CGOA Our American Home- The Gorge Sinfonietta

From the 1920s through the 1950s, composers such as George Gershwin, Aaron Copland and Samuel Barber created the “American sound” in classical music. Melodic, bursting with emotion and energy, the music was as wide open as a prairie and as urban as New York City. Unlike some of the more avant garde music of the time, the American sound was easy to understand and direct in its expression.
