Introducing Orchestra North Owen Sound UX!

This July 12-16th, I invite you to join us for Orchestra North Owen Sound UX, a virtual music program that offers daily morning online classes, private lessons, faculty concerts, participant performances, and more, led amazing local musicians and some of Canada's finest players and educators. From Monday to Friday, 10:00-11:45AM EDT, all participants will attend online classes for beginner, intermediate and advanced musicians on string, wind, and brass instruments. As well, each participant will receive a 30 minute lesson with our incredible faculty as part of their registration. Stay tuned for additional concerts and events that will occur throughout the week. Should COVID-19 restrictions ease this summer, we will also present Orchestra North LIVE afternoon events in downtown Owen Sound, featuring faculty concerts, a play-a-long orchestra and more. These events are in addition to regular Orchestra North UX programming, and are subject to change. .Our 2021 Artists Include:

  • Aaron Schwebel, Violin, Concertmaster, National Ballet of Canada

  • Yolanda Bruno, Violin, Toronto Symphony Orchestra

  • Aaron Hodgson, Trumpet, Associate Professor, Western University

  • Sarah Steeves, Cello, Sinfonia Toronto, Ton Beau Quartet

  • Robert Tite, Clarinet, Georgian Bay Symphony, Great Lakes Winds

  • Dr. Chantal Lemire, Viola, Musicology

Orchestra North believes strongly in accessibility to the arts with scholarships, bursaries, financial aid, and family discounts available for applicants. As well, we hope that through engagement with Orchestra North Owen Sound events, participants will have the opportunity to connect with other incredible organizations in our community, including the Georgian Bay Symphony, Sweetwater Music Festival, and the Harmony Centre. On behalf of the artists at Orchestra North, I look forward to seeing you at our festival this summer. You can help support this program, and the arts in our community by sharing this information with your friends, registering, and visiting our website at www.orchestranorth.com/owensound.
