Mission Statement

The CGOA provides high quality instrumental and choral music for the cultural enrichment, education, engagement and enjoyment of audiences and participants.

Fall Membership and Fundraising Campaign is Underway!

We don't have talking heads interrupting your music for a weeks-long pledge drive, but Fall is an important time for the Columbia Gorge Orchestra Association.  We've just sent out mailings to our growing list of members and participants, asking for another year's support. And this year, we're going to make it even easier to donate to us, helping to keep classical music alive and thriving!

Last year was one of incredible musical accomplishment and growth for the Sinfonietta and Voci.  In addition to spectacular performances with Aaron Meyer and Tim Ellis, the orchestra performed Beethoven's monumental 3rd symphony and ended the year with a swinging pair of concerts with Ben Bonham and the Off-Beat Swing Band.


We grew in 2012-13, added a new vocal ensemble (Interludes) as well as an annual concert of chamber music.

Our first ever crowdfunding project is coming soon!

In the next few weeks, we're going to be kicking off CGOA: CRESCENDO!, a crowdfunded project that will help the orchestra and choirs grow musically and bring even more music to our community.  Details can be found right here.

Meanwhile, please consider joining the CGOA at one of many donor levels. You can download a copy of our donation form (and return it in the mail), or donate directly using PayPal or through Network for Good by clicking on the links to the right. 

Thank you for supporting the CGOA!
