Mission Statement

The World Civic Orchestra uses music as a means to bridge the world’s differences.  We believe that music can help the world understand and appreciate the differences that too often lead to conflict because its essence is not bound by culture, race or religion; rather it is a universal language that touches the human soul.

What is next for WCO?

We are so happy to announce that we will be returning to Alice Tully Hall for our next concert, June 9th of 2019.

If that is not exciting enough, we will be having a joint concert with Kyoto Civic Philharmonic at Kyoto Concert Hall in Japan, September 21, 2020. That is also just after the Olympic Summer Games in Tokyo!

Plans of exploring collaboration programs with underdeveloped countries is also in the works.

With that said, we are keeping very busy. WCO is growing bigger and our mission is reaching further than we have ever imagined!

We couldn't do it without you!

Music is a moral law. It gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, and life to everything. It is the essence of order, and leads to all that is good, just and beautiful, of which it is the invisible, but nevertheless dazzling, passionate, and eternal form.
— Plato
