About Us

Vision: Enriching lives through dynamic symphonic music.

Mission Statement: The mission of COSA is to promote the growth and development of the Central Oregon Symphony through education, fundraising, marketing and public relations.

The Central Oregon Symphony is unique – its musicians are not paid - they devote countless volunteer hours to the task of creating a magical, full season of classical concerts for all members of our community to enjoy. This combined with unique partnerships in the community and our generous donor base; we are able to provide unreserved tickets at no cost, making this substantial art form available to everybody in the community. From modest beginnings in 1967, the orchestra has grown to become a major player in the local fine arts scene. Last year, over 8,000 individuals, children and families enjoyed symphony concerts.

Central Oregon Symphony is sponsored by the Central Oregon Symphony Association, (COSA, Inc.) and Central Oregon Community College.

The Operations Administrator of COSA is Krista Aasland.
