About the Boulder Chamber Orchestra

Boulder Chamber Orchestra (BCO) was established in 2004, and stands as Boulder’s premier professional chamber orchestra. Since our formation, we have played to sold-out audiences, and featured some of the area’s most talented musicians at our performances. BCO is committed to playing under performed rarely heard pieces, to educate audiences and bring to light incredible composers.

Our mission is to promote classical musical arts and education to ALL people, through an engaging and profound musical experience.

Our goal is to make classical music accessible to all, through connection and education; giving back to the community in the form of affordable concerts and free educational classes. We exist to share the gift of music by playing pieces that not just entertain, but transform lives. 

We believe that music is the ultimate form of communication. It reflects our thoughts, actions and our feelings as humans; Music connects us all in ways no other medium can, and brings us together, validating our existence as humans. This sharing of our humanity in form of sound is the reason we play.

BCO is committed to professional excellence, and to delivering performances of the highest quality. All of our musicians are professional musicians, who are paid for their time and talents.

We are always seeking new friends who share our love of music, and our commitment to enriching the Boulder arts community. There are many ways to get involved with BCO, whether it be playing in our orchestra, volunteering at our concerts, making a contribution to our organization, or spreading the word about our programs!
