2020-2021 Season

Announcing the 34th Season:  A Journey Into Sound!

Thank you visiting our site. Like you, we are recovering from a devastating experience, and have been caught off guard – most likely, also like you!

Due to Covid-19 our live performances have been cancelled until further notice. We hope to see your smiling faces soon. That doesn’t mean we won’t still be making music for our community…

In the meantime, whether you are a long-time supporter or would simply like to get to know us better, we urge you to peruse these pages. You will meet the players, the conductor, and see the many ways in which the Reston Community Orchestra (RCO) makes an impact within and beyond this very special neighborhood. Mark down and hold the following dates, then return to this homepage frequently to learn what will be in store during each visit. – Maestro Dingwall Fleary, Music Director
