Founded more than 30 years ago as a community orchestra, the WCO grew steadily but suddenly had money problems, causing abrupt cancellation of a season. It took a long time to recover the organization's sense of well-being, then in 1998 its long-time conductor David Lewis Crosby was felled by a heart attack.

In early 2000, the WCO named a new music director, Andrew Sewell. This provided a major lift for the organization, which seems to be moving upward again, surely a good thing.
