Cricket Chamber Orchestra News!

Sunday, October 30th, 2016

Hello Everyone,

Sincere apologies for the lateness of this update.  The summer was very busy as we planned and put on our first Cricket Chamber Orchestra Workshop! It was a great success.  Feedback was very positive from all attendees!  We are now back in full rehearsal mode as we prepare for our Christmas concert which will be held on December 17, 2016 at The Church of St. John the Evangelist (a.k.a. The Rock on Locke) at 320 Charlton Avenue West, Hamilton.  We hope to see you all there!! Also, we have some very exciting news for the orchestra, as it is our hopes to take the orchestra to Szentendre, Hungary next summer! As you know, both Mate and Anita are from Hungary and are arranging for a student exchange trip.  More details to follow, but watch for our fundraising efforts and a GoFundMe campaign in the near future. We appreciate your continued support!

Welcome to our new website! We hope you’ll take some time to have a look around. We’ve only just put some basic information about our orchestra and our illustrious conductor and violin coach, but hope to have more information here shortly!

In the meantime, if you play an instrument and would like to play in an orchestra setting, please contact us.  Currently we are looking for cellists and violists, but if you play another instrument, please see our “About the Cricket Chamber Orchestra” page, as well as, our “Contact” page.  The tabs for those pages is in the upper right hand corner!

Happy playing!
