Our 2016-17 Season marks Maestro Tim Smith’s 10th anniversary as conductor of Contra Costa Chamber Orchestra and we can’t wait to celebrate with you!

We’ll be reprising some of our best-loved repertoire from seasons past, and performing new and commissioned works by California composers.  Featured local soloists include world-renowned bassoonist Paul Hanson, performing Mozart’s Bassoon Concerto and a brand new orchestration of an original work “Concertino Serpentique” for electric bassoon and orchestra. Piccolo player, Amy Likar will be featured on Martin Rokeach’s Concert for Piccolo and Orhestra, premiered to critical acclaim last year. In Spring, enjoy the vocal talents of sopranos Elizabeth Hunter-Ashley and Sarah Sloan as well as our very own Jeff Albright. Lastly, don’t forget to bring the whole family along to our musical tribute to all things Disney – a concert that’s sure to be a hit with everyone!

We look forward to sharing this beautiful music with you at one of our two convenient performance venues; Walnut Creek’s grand Lesher Center for the Arts and the charming historic El Campanil Theatre in Antioch. We hope you’ll join us!
