Interim 2nd Oboist, Violin and Viola players needed!

We are currently looking for an accomplished oboist to play 2nd for our next two concerts in the season. We have two exciting programs featuring works by Schubert, Fauré, and Rimsky-Korsakov.

We would also welcome violinists and violists to help grow our string sections.

We rehearse Monday evenings 7:30-9:45 at The Church of the Messiah at Dupont and Avenue Road in downtown Toronto. Membership fee for the rest of the season is $80 payable at our first rehearsal on January 9th, 2023.
We are a volunteer orchestra of the highest quality. We hope you’ll consider joining this fine group of lovely community musicians!

For more information please contact Sarah John at summerhillorchestra@gmail.com

Go Fund Me Campaign!

Did you know that our little community orchestra has 13 professional musicians? Our principal players work as volunteers in Summerhill Orchestra but they donate their time, energy and talent to lead and support live music in our community. Without them we would not have a vibrant community ensemble!
To say thanks we are having a Go Fund Me campaign to support these fine players.
With your help we will be able to give them a small token as thank you for all they do for S.O.

Please help support our ensemble by donating today.
Here is the link to our campaign. Many thanks!
