About Us

NOCS’ goal is to continue to bring live classical music to the north Oregon coast. Our musicians come from a 100-mile span of the North Oregon Coast and Southwest Washington Coast to rehearse and create classical music programs for the community’s enjoyment and appreciation. This all-volunteer symphony is committed to growing into a sustainable arts organization for the benefit of the community, offering concerts, trios and quartets for events, music education and scholarships for K-12, and ongoing opportunities for community members to become involved as performing musicians or support staff.

Sponsorship monies and ticket sales are meeting some of the ongoing expenses of the orchestra. However, as with all arts groups, additional funds for specific items are always needed. With your support as listeners and contributors, as well as the capable participation of orchestra musicians, live symphony music concerts will remain a significant component of the local arts scene.
