About the Creative Team

Imagine Symphony Live is a collaboration of independent artists and the Central Oregon Symphony, who are passionate about the joy, relationships, and history that community symphony has brought to us.

The Music

The Central Oregon Symphony musicians range from 9-years-old to 78-years-old, with legacies back over 50 years. All the featured musicians are represented either in the film or online experience. The Central Oregon Symphony Association has also been a critical factor of the project’s operation.
