Cochrane Music Society Has a New Logo!

It’s official! Cochrane Music Society has a new logo!

We have been working on a fresh, new design to express our personality with pride and pizzazz.  Just in time for the start of our 20th season, we are sporting a symbol that merges our organization’s historical river theme with our dynamic spirit making music in fun, contemporary ensembles. It is unique and memorable and represents our character vividly.

We will be rolling out our new logo in Facebook and new concert signage. The individual logos of Band on the Bow, Riverside Jazz and Choral Waves that have served us for many years will be retired.
