CGOA – More than an orchestra!

The Columbia Gorge Orchestra Association is home to several performing arts ensembles. In its over 40-year history, the Sinfonietta orchestra has brought hundreds of concerts to thousands of local audience members, including world premieres and collaborations with local, regional and nationally recognized artists. CGOA also proudly includes Voci, a community choir with over 50 members, the Jazz Collective Big Band, Stages Theatre, the Hood River String Quartet and the Youth Chorus. Performances are throughout the year at family friendly locations such as the state of the art Wy’east Performing Arts Center or the historic Hood River Middle School auditorium. Whether you join us in the audience or add your unique talents to one of our ensembles, the Columbia Gorge Orchestra Association welcomes all!
