The first Etobicoke Philharmonic concert took place on February 22, 1961 and the orchestra obtained its charter as a registered charity. After more than 60 years, the Etobicoke Philharmonic Orchestra is now an anchor cultural institution in a vibrant, diverse Etobicoke community.
Our 2023/24 season features familiar pieces beloved for centuries as well as great works that are new to us (and you?), from Bach’s Little Fugue to a ‘little boy’s’ prize-winning composition written 300 years later.
As always, we showcase stellar soloists, starting with Andrew Wan of Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal playing Beethoven's iconic Violin Concerto, Michael Berkovsky performing the mighty Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1, Cameron Crozman playing the magnificent Dvorak cello concerto, our own Sam Cancellera performing Haydn's Trumpet Concerto, and also joining our own Cristina Sewerin for Copland’s Quiet City.
Why not make “Philharmonic Friday" a regular self-care habit by buying a season subscription? Unplug your devices and plug into your soul with great, live, local orchestral music.
