About the orchestra

Mountain Top Music Center Community Orchestra is a free, non-auditioned ensemble welcoming musicians of any age with some experience and/or comfort with large-ensemble repertoire. The Orchestra rehearses weekly September through May and performs 3 or more concerts throughout the year. The programs vary from classical repertoire to film music to collaborations with dance and theater groups, and more. Concerts take place throughout the region and are open to all by donation.

Upcoming Performances

Due to the pandemic, the orchestra is currently on hiatus. Rehearsals and performances will resume as soon as it’s possible to do so safely. 

Past Seasons

Join the orchestra for a humorous and interactive program of music introducing those new to the world of the orchestra to the wonders of symphonic music.

Featuring music from Harry Potter, Pixar, and great classical composers, an instrument petting zoo, interactive activities, and an informal setting where dancing, clapping, and more is encouraged.

Get into the spirit of the changing seasons with evocative music from a range of composers depicting landscapes, weather, and atmospheres.
