Have you wanted to know more about our orchestra? Here’s a short interview with our conductor, Dr. J. Arturo Gonzalez.
The FCO performs both full orchestral repertoire and symphonic wind repertoire. A core group of wind players comprise the wind section of the orchestra. If a particular wind section is complete for the core orchestral group, other players of that instrument are encouraged to join the symphonic wind group, which uses more instruments per section than the orchestra. Subs and replacements for the orchestra will be chosen preferentially from the symphonic wind group.
Generally, most rehearsals consist of half full orchestra, and half sectionals (one of which is the symphonic winds).
Please read the “Mission and Principles” section for membership policies.
We are accepting all string players
Symphonic winds – all are welcome
Orchestra – we are currently looking for oboes
