The OCC Orchestra with the Florence Community Choir

 

The OCCO Board has announced the cancellation of the Spring 2020 concert series.

Most of the orchestra members are also involved in music education, dance bands, church groups and other musical outlets. On a limited budget and a with busy personal life, Maestro John Monks regularly rises to the challenge of simultaneously serving the varied interests of the orchestra while striving for maximum audience appeal. The successful accomplishment of these goals requires a researcher's meticulous selection methods, a composer's skill to craft custom arrangements of each composition for the available musicians, and the ideal conductor's personality of a saint with a sense of humor and a baton.
