About Us

The Mission of Twin Peaks Chamber Orchestra is Three-Fold:

  • To develop the professional careers of Bay Area instrumentalists age 16–24
  • To offer Bay Area music lovers an adventurous mix of well-loved classics and rarely performed masterpieces
  • To present world premieres of works by Bay Area composers age 16–24

Twin Peaks Chamber Orchestra is unique. Led by superb, experienced principal string players, the musicians are age 16–24.. But we are not your typical youth orchestra. We prepare exceptionally talented young players for the demands of a professional career by replicating the working conditions of  a major symphony orchestra: four paid rehearsals and a performance within a single week. Along with hours of independent practice, this creates an exceptional experience for our young players. They are up to the challenge. And you’ll hear the results.

With its professional standards and adventurous programming, Twin Peaks Chamber Orchestra offers something invaluable to Bay Area young musicians and audiences alike.
