The Redlands Community Orchestra is devoted to sharing the joy of music making, engaging our audience, and enriching the cultural life of our community through artistic expression.
The Redlands Community Orchestra will be broadly recognized as an exceptional cultural institution throughout the Inland Empire. We will earn our patrons’ enthusiasm by engaging our community, developing our talent, making responsible business decisions, and providing innovative musical performances to our growing audience.
Who we are
Based in Redlands, California, the Redlands Community Orchestra is an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit community organization where amateur musicians of all ages can play orchestral music together for fun.
We rehearse weekly and perform three concerts per year. In addition to performing works by classical greats such as Beethoven, Brahms, Tchaikovsky, and Mozart, we have also premiered original compositions. We currently have about 60 all-volunteer members, and our conductor is James Benanti, Director of Instrumental Music at Redlands High School.
The orchestra was founded in 2013 by Melinda Morang and held its inaugural concert on November 10, 2013.
