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.

The WCO is excited to announce that our Music Director & Conductor, Vincent Koh has been invited to conduct a professional chamber orchestra in Prague on November 12, 2015!

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
