The North Coast Chamber Orchestra finishes its 2018-19 season with two compelling classical music concerts titled “Music on the Land”. The first concert, June 15th, celebrates the 15th anniversary of Circle Creek Conservation Center in Seaside, and takes place in the big barn at Circle Creek. This event, “Concert in the Barn”, is co-sponsored by the North Coast Chamber Orchestra and the North Coast Land Conservancy. The second concert, June 16th, will be held at the beautiful St. Catherine Episcopal Church in Nehalem.
The pastoral-themed program includes pieces by Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, and Copland, performed in two unique venues that support our connection to the North Coast environment.
The North Coast Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Conductor Cory Pederson, is an all-volunteer ensemble of North Coast musicians dedicated to providing local audiences with the opportunity to hear live classical music.
