Counterpoint Community Orchestra 2022Counterpoint is the oldest LGBT+ orchestra in Canada and possibly the world. Founded in 1984 in the gay village of Toronto, Counterpoint is celebrating its 40th anniversary with the 2023/24 season. For most of that time, rehearsals have been held at the 519 Church St. Community Centre. Although COVID-19 caused some disruption to our concert schedule and rehearsal venues, we resumed concerts in June 2022 and are returning to the 519 this fall for rehearsals. Andrew Chung has been our Music Director since 2016.

This year's season will feature opera arias by Strauss, Mozart, Gounod and Puccini and a drag performer on December 9, 2023 a largely unknown flute concerto by Heinrich Hofmann and Beethoven's Coriolan Overture and the Eroica Symphony on March 23, 2024 and 20th Century music by gay/lesbian composers such as Bernstein, Britten, Barber and Ethel Smyth for the special anniversary concert on June 15, 2024.
