About

2014/15 marks the 31st season of the Oakville Chamber Orchestra, originally known as the Oakville Chamber Ensemble. Founded in 1984 as a group of amateur string players, this musical group has steadily grown in size, aspirations and quality into its current form.  The core of the orchestra is that of string players, with professional section leaders, augmented by wind, brass and percussion players, allowing for the presentation of a large musical repertoire by masters of all periods. While the number of musicians changes according to the needs of the music performed, the basic raison d’être remains as amateur musicians presenting the music they love in a smaller, more intimate chamber setting. The Orchestra also appears occasionally as the guest performer in events run by local organizations, for example Oakville Children’s Choir, Canadian Music Competition and Halton Youth Symphony.

Each season we perform up to 4 concerts in our Season Subscription.  We are proud to include concerts featuring our Youth Concerto Competition winners in this four concert series.  Now going into our third year, our Concerto Competition is a highly anticipated event each year.
