The Oregon Coast Music Festival Orchestra in performance, 2014
The First 60 Seconds
Our 80 piece professional orchestra belongs uniquely to us. They come from throughout the Northwest and nation to perform together for only one week during Festival. They arrive Sunday evening, greet each other for the first time in a year, then take their seats on the stage. James Paul, Conductor and Music Director of the Festival Orchestra since 1991, taps his baton on the music stand and raises his arms to begin their first practice. This is what we heard in the first 60 seconds, 2015.
