“This is the first event I have attended with my husband, Joe, where he has not fallen asleep during the performance!”

Orchestra of the Moon is an early music ensemble from Portland, Oregon. We perform tunes and songs from the European Middle Ages, from which the Western music of today evolved. The ensemble is distinguished by lively interpretations of this seldom-heard musical tradition, as well as by an extremely diverse sound palette, created through the use of more than 50 different period instruments.

Orchestra of the Moon includes musicians from a wide range of backgrounds, including teachers, puppeteers, writers, immigrants, and laborers.

The mission of the Orchestra is to share and perpetuate interest in this branch of music by bringing it to audiences from all parts of the community.
