Upcoming Events

The Howard County Concert Orchestra was formed to provide Howard County with a completely professional orchestra, dedicated to exceptional performances of music from the Baroque era to the 21 century. Season passes are available for the three major concerts in our annual performance season. Additional HCCO events (not covered by the season pass) are performed with other organizations and coordinated by them.
