The Ithaca Community Orchestra was founded in 2000 by composer and conductor John Webber and in 2005 Cayenna Ponchione was engaged as the new music director. The ICO presents concerts for the general public, plays at community events, and is dedicated to performing at local residential institutions such as nursing homes. The orchestra gives avocational string players the opportunity to be part of a large ensemble and gives avocational wind players an opportunity to play the orchestral literature.
