Durham Chamber Orchestra has been performing in Durham region for the past 21 years, featuring talented amateur and professional musicians, guest soloists and ensembles. We are excited to move to a new larger concert venue in Ajax this season after selling out all performances last year. Conducted by dynamic music director Carlos Bastidas in his second season with the DCO, the orchestra will present three concerts in 2017/18. Highlights include “It's Christmas” with audience sing-along, “A Musical Journey” with Shout Sister choir and soloists from the Oshawa Opera company and “A Salute to our Youth” with international violin virtuoso Andrew Sords. The DCO is also performing a joint concert with the Ontario Pops Orchestra to celebrate Canada 150, with the generous sponsorship of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Details of these events are available on the website. New playing members are always welcome.
