Willamette Falls Symphony is filling a gap in Clackamas County by providing an opportunity for residents to enjoy classical music locally at low cost. Three to four concerts a year are presented. The audience includes a large portion of senior citizens and is drawn mostly from the surrounding area, including Gladstone, Oregon City, West Linn, Milwaukie, Canby, Estacada and Molalla.
The objectives of the orchestra are twofold:
Make classical music easily accessible to the community at a low cost.
Give qualified community members or all ages and ethnic backgrounds an opportunity to play classical music.
Many orchestra members are involved in symphony-related projects, such as playing in smaller groups for local senior residences, service clubs, fund-raising picnics, and presenting elementary school concerts in Oregon City.
