A Community Orchestra Bringing Musicians of All Ages Together. 

The Westside Community & Youth Orchestra was founded in October 2007 in Hillsboro Oregon.

  • We have established ourselves as a unique group, with a mix of adult and youth players.

  • We fill a notable gap in the community as there are no school orchestras that include strings in our area.

  • WCYO encourages leadership and mentoring for all its musicians.

  • ​Our orchestra does not charge members to participate, nor do we charge to attend our concerts. We rely solely on donations and grants to continue our existence, in turn giving the very best performances we can offer.
