– PROGRAM OVERVIEW –
The Columbia Gorge Orchestra Association creates local musical and theater experiences that challenge, refresh, unite, inspire and help us con-nect with one another. Under the artistic direction of Mark Steighner, CGOA is bringing more than 13 events and 36 live performances to Gorge resi-dents this season.
The Columbia Gorge Sinfonietta: Our orches-tra is celebrating 40 years of bringing high-quality classical music to our region including major symphonic works, world premieres and nationally recognized guest artists.
Voci Choir: This mixed-voice community choir has grown in size and ambition, presenting world music, great choral masterpieces and several debut performances. The choir’s holiday concert is a Gorge tradition.
The Jazz Collective Big Band: Local music educators, professional musicians and talented am-ateurs explore classic arrangements as well as the art of improvisation in this high-energy ensemble.
Stages: Our theater ensemble draws on the best talent of the Gorge to present a range of musicals from classics like West Side Story to Off Broadway hits like Murder Ballad.
Gorge Youth Chorus: CGOA provides quality choral instruction to children ages 8-13 through our area-wide ensemble, which performs through-out the Gorge and with the Voci Choir.
Gorge String Quartet: The quartet plays several times a year for special events and in smaller venues where its fresh sounds and classical pieces stir the heart.
