Vero Beach Chamber Orchestra
The idea of a community orchestra for Vero Beach was conceived in 2007. Since then, each year the Vero Beach Chamber Orchestra has presented two free concerts (donations encouraged) to the community at the Vero Beach High School Performing Arts Center.
Donations support the VBCO, which in turn provides support to local music students through sheet music donations, scholarships, and orchestral experience. The first concert of Season Nine ALL proceeds/donations ($7,900) were given to the Vero Beach High School Philharmonic Orchestra to support their Ambassadorial Concert tour in Austria during May and June of 2017.
Classical Music: Accessible and Affordable for All!
