Music abounds on the Oregon Coast and this coming week from Tuesday, July 25, through Saturday, July 29, is part of the annual music festival in Coos Bay, Oregon. This is orchestra week with conductor James Paul at the helm for his 26th year. Adam Stern will conduct the pops concert on July 27.
This is the 39th year for the OCMF and every year is unique. More than 80 master musicians from all over the country and Canada participate in this event making it one of the most popular music festivals in the USA.
The musicians return year after year and the audiences return year after year, also. Many are members of the Oregon Coast Music Association and receive a $5.00 discount on all concert tickets. Tickets are $25.00 for adults, $20.00 for OCMA members and $15.00 for students per concert for those attending any of the three concerts in the Marshfield High School Auditorium in Coos Bay.
There are many great places for dinner in Coos Bay but go early and travel the 8 miles to Charleston to our favorite place on the Bay, the Portside. Enjoy great, expansive views of the Bay, boats and if it’s low tide you might see a few clam diggers. The food is great, too!

Thursday, July 27, 7:30 pm: Orchestra Pops Concert, Adam Stern, Conductor
