2018 PRYO Contest Winners Announced!

Community Orchestra in Seattle


Hit the right note--with the Phinney Ridge Orchestra!

Since 2007, we've been putting on concerts at churches, farmer's markets, retirement homes, and restaurants. We play classical hits and interesting pieces you might not hear elsewhere, such as overlooked gems from the classical repertoire, and beautiful cinematic arrangements. 

About us

Conductor Todd Kovell founded the PRO, a community orchestra in Seattle. He is an award-winning composer whose pieces have been played not only at Benaroya and other Seattle venues, but in Europe and Australia as well. A graduate of the composition department at the prestigious Oberlin Conservatory, Todd currently teaches theory classes at the Seattle Film Institute's film scoring program, where he was hired by Emmy-award winning composer Hummie Mann. Todd is a pro at arranging difficult pieces to make them playable for anyone.

We have fun!

We do this for the enjoyment of playing music. Our musicians have a wide range of playing experience.  We strive to challenge those who are up to it, but if you prefer to take it easy, we have a part for you as well. No matter your level, we can help you have the best possible musical experience.
