Hart House Orchestra
The Hart House Orchestra is an auditioned group that provides its participants with opportunities to perform in a challenging orchestra led by Principal Conductor Henry Janzen and Assistant Conductor Bill Rowson. The orchestra has a large membership of dedicated but non-professional members who enjoy classical music. We perform 3 concerts a year at Hart House, as well as one concert at a location out of town. We often collaborate with other groups, run an annual concerto competition and enjoy tackling a difficult and rich repertoire. The orchestra exists to help those people interested in fine tuning their playing skills and techniques to reach a higher level of proficiency.
The Orchestra holds two open rehearsals at the beginning of the year and several auditions days following that. Concerto Competition is usually held in the second term and is open to anyone. The orchestra often has spots available in the string section well into the first term and usually requires ringers for specialized solos, so please contact us if you are interested.
Weekly rehearsals are held on Tuesday evenings in the Great Hall at Hart House.
