Founded in 1984, Counterpoint Community Orchestra is an inclusive LGBTQ orchestra. As the first gay positive orchestra in the world, Counterpoint has been in the vanguard for gay rights and bringing awareness to the community’s struggle for equality and acceptance for more than 33 years. A non-profit, member-run, full symphony orchestra for amateur and professional musicians, Counterpoint welcomes all. Drawing its programming from Baroque to contemporary repertoire, Counterpoint is committed to sharing the magic of orchestral music with audiences across the country. Counterpoint’s homebase is in the heart of Toronto’s Gay Village, The 519 Church Street Community Centre. Rehearsals are held there every Monday night at 8pm.
