Welcome to






Raleigh Community Orchestra was founded in 2017 to give all ages of accomplished musicians the opportunity to enjoy playing orchestral music together.  We love to rehearse, perform, fellowship, and have fun.


ABC-11 featured us in an article and video feature, showcasing our "great entertainment at a bargain price."
