We have a special broadcast concert for you on Sunday! Members of the RCO gathered on 9/27/2020 at Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church to record a concert that will be broadcast on Earlham’s public radio station (WECI 91.5 FM) and Whitewater Community Television at IU East (WETV Channel 20) Sunday 10/25/2020 at 5pm.

Ray Ontko set up in Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church before other RCO members arrive to record a special concert.

The concert is about 50 minutes and includes our string and piano/keyboard players in a socially distanced and masked performance under the direction of Musical Director, Jay Conard.

Remainder of RCO Season canceled due to Covid 19

It is disappointing, but perhaps not surprising, that we find it necessary to cancel the remaining performances of the Richmond Community Orchestra for the current season, due to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

The RCO concerts on May 3 (Civic Hall), and June 8 (Elstro Plaza) are canceled.

It is abundantly clear that it would be too risky for the health of our players to rehearse until the risk of COVID-19 infection has passed. Similarly, it will be too risky for the health of our audience members to assemble for a performance anytime in the next 8 weeks.

RCO members are still practicing music individually at home in anticipation of the time when we can perform again, perhaps later this summer, or next fall.
