e are a faith-based group of amateur musicians in the Portland, Vancouver area (Washington, not Canada) who rehearse each Thursday night in Vancouver. We were formerly known as the Northwest LDS Symphony Orchestra. We perform several free concerts each season. Our principal conductor is Gary Parks; our Founder and conductor emeritus is Colleen Tolva. We play all types of wholesome music: show tunes, movie themes, pops, semi-classical, classical, secular, spiritual, patriotic. We just don't plug any of our instruments in. Most of us are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, but we welcome musicians of all faiths to come and audition with us.
