Christmas in the Country, held annually the first Friday, Saturday & Sunday of December, is Bainbridge Island’s premier winter holiday event. Launching the celebration of the Christmas season each year since 1993, this beloved community event supports home-based business entrepreneurs, nonprofit organizations, artists, authors, and musicians.
The Poulsbo Community Orchestra (PCO) is made up of musicians from the Puget Sound region who rehearse weekly with three scheduled concerts. The PCO is open to all string, woodwind, brass, and percussion musicians looking to gain orchestral experience and to build skill. In addition, this is a great opportunity to learn first hand how an orchestra functions and what it takes to mount a musical performance. Membership includes 16 year olds (which is the minimum age requirement) to adults. Musicians must have at least 2 years recent playing experience. Regular attendance is required to perform in concerts. Members must provide their own instrument and should bring their own music stand.
