Beginning with the Gorge Sinfonietta (which began in 1979), CGOA has grown to include a number of ensembles, covering a wide variety of genres. Since its inception, CGOA has embarked on a program of artistic growth, increasingly high standards of performance, and exceptional, innovative programming, including world premieres and collaborations with local, regional, and nationally recognized artists, including Storm Large, the Vienna Boys Choir, Sam Baker, Tish Hinojosa, Tom Grant, David Wilcox, Stephen Seifert, Blair Tindall, and Aaron Meyer, just to name a few.
