Our Senior PACO orchestra has participated in numerous international music festivals, winning many awards and honors, and has toured worldwide by special invitation.
In addition to its international touring, PACO ends each season in June with an Ashland (OR) tour that concludes with an invited performance on the famed Ashland Elizabethan stage, sponsored by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Chamber Music Concerts. PACO has been the only youth organization ever so invited. This 3-day mini-tour also includes a concert in the beautiful Dunsmuir (CA) Botanical Gardens, outreach events in Ashland and an appearance on the Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s popular outdoor Green Show.
Recent PACO tours have taken the orchestra to Italy, central Europe (Budapest, Vienna, Prague, Leipzig, Potsdam and Berlin), Turkey, England, the Pacific Northwest/Vancouver, and an East Coast tour that culminated in a performance at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City.
