Big Bend Community Orchestra

The Big Bend Community Orchestra was formed in 1994 by Waldie Anderson and Ginny Densmore to provide a venue for community musicians in the area to play symphonic music in an enjoyable atmosphere, and to promote music education and participation. The Orchestra consists of community members and TCC students. To date, the Orchestra has presented 61 concerts and over 245 different compositions by a wide variety of composers spanning four centuries. 

Each year, the Big Bend Community Orchestra showcases student musicians in a competition called "The Young Artist Competition." In this competition, students prepare a selection to be played for three experienced orchestral conductors. Three first place winners are then invited to play with the Big Bend Community Orchestra.

Under the Direction of Dr. Shelby Chipman, the Big Bend Community Orchestra practices on Thursday nights in the TCC Band Room. TCC students are encouraged to participate. For more information, please visit the Big Bend Community Orchestra Web site or contact the artist series office at (850) 224-9934.
