Pomona College Orchestra

As one of the largest and most prestigious performing organizations on campus, the Pomona College Orchestra has a long tradition as an important creative and cultural outlet for the students, faculty, and staff of The Claremont Colleges. Although the majority of its members are Pomona College students, the orchestra also has representatives from Scripps, Harvey Mudd, Claremont McKenna, and Pitzer colleges, as well as the Claremont Graduate University, other local colleges, and the greater Claremont community. The home of the PCO is the beautiful, newly renovated Bridges Hall of Music, on the Pomona College campus. The orchestra not only performs on this magnificent stage but also has the great privilege of rehearsing there regularly.

The members of the Orchestra benefit from the social, emotional, and spiritual experiences that come from a close association with great music and fellow musicians. Most of the Orchestra's personnel stay in the group year after year, seeing it as a part of college life that they don't want to do without. Members form close friendships that last far beyond their years at Pomona, with the time spent in the Orchestra acting as a common bond.
