Cowichan's Community String Orchestra

About Us:

The not-for-profit Cowichan Camerata String Orchestra is a group of musicians of all ages, coming together to make music!

We are grateful to our financial sponsors which for 2016-17 include:

Alderlea Medical Clinic

BC Torchbearer Beta

D.W. Holmes Resources Consulting Ltd.

Garth and Ruth Williams

J.W. Kidd Consulting Ltd.

Mike’s Violins

Outlooks Menswear Duncan Ltd.

We would also like to thank Queen Margaret's School for the use of their music room for our rehearsal venue Saturday mornings.
The orchestra began in 2006 under the direction of conductor Garth Williams and has gathered musicians from within our community, including all ages between 10 - 90 years.  It has been a great inter-generational community group which enjoys playing with each other and playing for the Cowichan area. 
We strive to perform music which appeals to all ages, and to make orchestral music accessible to the community.  We have performed at local Island Health facilities including the Cowichan District Hospital, Cairnsmore Place and Cerrwyden Care Center.  We have played on stage at the Duncan Farmer's Market and at the Station during Duncan Days, as well as at The Duncan Garage.

Our orchestra welcomes new members in 2016-17, our 10th Anniversary celebration season!  Please contact us, or come to a rehearsal and check us out!
