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, Cerrwyden Care Center and the Lodge on 4th.  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 2017-18, our 11th season!  Please contact us, or come to a rehearsal and check us out!
