Orquesta de Baja California (in English Baja California Orchestra) is an orchestra based in the Mexican state of Baja California.

The ensemble is a chamber orchestra of variable size, composed of about 17 to 40 musicians, and conducted by Maestro Angel Romero and Armando Pesquiera. As of mid-2006, Maestro Romero is no longer Music Director of the OBC, and was succeeded as Music Director by Maestro Ivan del Prado who is also Music Director of the Orquesta Sinfonica National de Cuba. The orchestra players are primarily from Latin America, but there are also several regular orchestra members from the former Soviet Bloc, as well as extra players when necessary, from the USA. In April 2005, it toured under Maestro Romero's direction with American musician Sean Bradley and some other American orchestra players to perform at Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York.
