Welcome to the Second Season of the Chamber Orchestra of Edmonton.
In 2019 we are pleased to present three exciting concerts.
On February 24th, my very good friend, concertmaster of Mississippi Symphony Orchestra, Marta Szlubowska will perform a piece by a Canadian composer Marjan Mozetich.
On May 26th Andrea Pedro, a young pianist presently studying at the University of Alberta will play Mozart with us.
On July 7th I will perform a piece for oboe and string orchestra by our own John McPherson. Each concert will have pieces that will showcase the orchestra with the music of Tchaikovsky, Grieg, Holst among others.
This season we will be performing in a new venue: Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Old Strathcona.
I hope that you will join us!

The Society’s mission is to promote a greater knowledge, appreciation and enjoyment of orchestral chamber music through live performances, and educational initiatives by the Chamber Orchestra of Edmonton.
As a very young musician our Artistic Director, Lidia Khaner was given similar opportunities. She is very grateful that she had a chance to join one of the top European orchestras: the Polish Chamber Orchestra, which eventually became Sinfonia Varsovia, when she was a first- year student at the Music Academy in Warsaw, Poland. Lidia says, “I have learned from the best, as this orchestra became the most insightful and eye-opening school I could ever imagine”. She was given a chance play with: Yehudi Menuhin, Charles Dutoit, Hans Graff, Krzysztof Penderecki, Mstislav Rostropovich, Anne Sophie Mutter, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Pierre Rampall and many more.
And now by including young professional musicians in the new Chamber Orchestra we are giving the newest generation a chance to do the same, to learn next to the best musicians of Edmonton.
