Orchestra rehearses Monday nights from 7:30pm until 9:30 pm at Sylvan United Church in Mill Bay, near the Frances Kelsey High School. Our first rehearsal of the next session, our 32nd Season, will be Sept 11th, 2023. We resume after having a disjointed ‘stop and start’ 30th and 31st seasons due to the different pandemic waves. And we welcome our new resident Conductor, Pippa Williams.
Masks can be worn by members if they wish. Vaccine passports could be asked to be shown at the door to enter and participate in September. We will adhere to the Provincial Health regulations in place, at that time.
String players are all welcome. Playing at a Conservatory level string grade 7 or 8 and higher, is best for full playing enjoyment. Wind chairs are open only when seats become available. As of August 2023: 2 trombone chairs, 2nd oboe, and one horn chair are open……we are making music in 2023-24 !!
Check out our large choral works list, performed since the 1991-92 . First season. Look under Performances under the About Us column. Other orchestral repertoire is not listed. But guest adult soloists, young soloists, choirs, and special groups who have made music with us, are.
The Cowichan Consort Orchestra welcomes you !
