Seeking Great Musicians to Join Us

The CCO is always happy to have new musicians join us. We are currently looking for the following:
  • Bassoon
  • Trumpet
  • French Horn
  • Trombone
  • Tuba
  • Percussion
And we're always happy to welcome more string players. There is no audition required. All members must be 18 or above, or have a parent or adult sibling willing to attend all rehearsals and concerts.

If you or someone you know has a need for some music therapy, come dust off your instrument and remind yourself how great it is to be part of a quality ensemble playing beautiful and exciting music. Our new rehearsal hall is large enough to accommodate a larger group, so come help us fill up the room!

For more information, contact orchestra president Jonathan Chipman at gokkan2@hotmail.com. Or just show up at one of our rehearsals to check us out. We rehearse Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm at 48 N 350 E Layton, UT 84041.
