Steve Miller conducts Full OLLI Orchestr

About Us

United by a love of music, a group of diverse musicians gather Wednesday evenings in Grass Valley to rehearse classical music. Some are retired professional musicians; some are completely new to orchestra. 


The OLLI Orchestra provides an opportunity for musicians to “extend and push themselves while having great fun playing with a group,” said violinist Marilyn Yerkes.


According to conductor and educator Steve Miller, the group “is dedicated to the ensemble. Most of the people have had experience playing in different types of groups, from rock and roll bands to symphony orchestras.”
