The non-profit Columbia Gorge Orchestra Association (CGOA) was created in 2005 to promote the appreciation and performance of Classical Music in the Columbia Gorge region of Oregon.  Ensembles such as The Columbia Gorge Sinfonietta, The String Orchestra, and Voci Women's Vocal Ensemble present a number of performances throughout the year.

CGOA is actively seeking Board Members.  If you have a little time and energy to devote to the cause of Classical Music, we could use your help! Contact Board President Faith Ackerman or Music Director Mark Steighner for more information. Join the mailing list and learn about upcoming events.
