The Community Women’s Orchestra welcomes musicians who identify as female. The orchestra encourages an intermediate level of playing (or above) and also hosts regular chamber music gatherings to help members grow and bond on their instruments. Suggested minimum playing requirements are HERE. To see a list of recent orchestral repertoire, or for more information, email info@communitywomensorchestra.org.

At this time, CWO has the following vacancies:
