A Tradition of Excellence in Community Concerts

The Music Company Orchestra is a 60-piece volunteer community orchestra performing for those who do not ordinarily hear orchestral music so they can experience the excitement of a live concert.  In addition to playing at area retirement centers and nursing homes, we support local needs/charities.

The musicians of the Music Company Orchestra are parents, grandparents, great grandparents and students. They are engineers, computers programmers, teachers, students, scientists, health care workers and other. They have homes, families, commitments and busy schedules. Many are retired after a full life of work. They live in upstate New York, from Glens Falls to south of Albany, and we have several from Vermont, including our conductor. But they have one thing in common – they love playing music. The MCO has over 60 musicians who bring their skill, talent and passion for music to each rehearsal and each concert.
