Parkdale UC Orchestra

Profile Type: Ensemble


The Parkdale United Church Orchestra is a community orchestra composed of amateur musicians with a wide range of musical skills, talents, age and experience. What unites us is our love for playing music and our commitment to perform some of the western world's greatest classical and contemporary music. Our goal is to provide opportunities for amateur players of all ages to play orchestral music for their mutual enjoyment and pleasure. As well, we provide opportunities for student musicians to perform as soloists with a full symphony orchestra.

The Orchestra traces its roots to 1945 when members of Parkdale United Church in Ottawa formed a small ensemble to play at church services once a month. From this nucleus, the group expanded over the years to its current full symphony orchestra size. The church remains the venue for concerts and rehearsals but the musicians are no longer members of Parkdale United Church.
