Ticket & Seating Information
The Kitchener-Waterloo Chamber Orchestra has been a part of this area's musical community since 1985. Its 34 members consist of talented amateur musicians, students from the Faculties of Music at Wilfrid Laurier University and other music schools plus a core of professional players. Together they share a love of music and a commitment to excellence in performance.
The orchestra is conducted by its founding music director, Graham Coles, who holds three degrees from the University of Toronto and who has studied with Boyd Neel, Victor Feldbrill, Lawrence Leonard, Gabriel Chmura and Jeanne Lamon.
We specialize in presenting lesser known music from the 18th and early 19th centuries.
"You lead us down the road not taken--where gems exist."
(Marguerite Fleming, audience member)
