47th Season

David Grandis, Music Director

Virginia Chamber Orchestra Organization

The Virginia Chamber Orchestra is supported by an elected Board of Trustees. Trustees donate time and resources to facilitate after-performance receptions, fund-raising events, and numerous administrative activities. An Honorary Board and Corporate Committee also provide guidance and support. As a non-profit organization, the VCO depends on the support of its audience. Its fine performances are made possible through the generosity of individual donors, as well as public and private corporations and foundations.


The VCO currently has board and volunteer positions open for people with skills in marketing, networking, social media, communications, and graphic arts, including opportunities to advance to leadership positions. We are also seeking people interested in assisting with the annual Gala and Musicales. The board holds quarterly meetings in Fairfax City.
