Oakland Civic Orchestra (OCO), under the direction of
Martha Stoddard, Artistic Director and Conductor, is a volunteer community orchestra bringing together musicians of all ages and backgrounds to share in the joy and magic of music-making. Founded in 1992, OCO is funded by the City of Oakland Office of Parks and Recreation, and by the members themselves.
Oakland Civic Orchestra performs four concerts each year, and our members come from cities throughout the Bay Area to participate. The orchestra currently is at a membership of 50, with complete wind, brass and percussion sections. Players range in skills and experience from intermediate to professional levels.
