2021-2022 NEWSLETTER


Welcome back everyone! We hope you had a wonderful summer and that you and your family and friends are all safe and well.  Orchestra season is upon us and we are very excited to get back to playing music. Rehearsals are at the Hellenic Community Centre, 475 Park Road North in Brantford. First rehearsal is Thursday September 9, 2021.  


As the Covid19 pandemic continues, we must following the health and safety guidelines of the Ontario Government, the City of Brantford, and the Brant County Health Unit. It is very important to the executive that members who want to attend feel safe coming to rehearsals. The health and well-being of our members and our community is our highest priority.

Concerts

We will provide more information about concerts as the year progresses. What I hope is that we can rent a church or two and play in the space just to let the

sound wash over us. Perhaps we can record or live stream some performances next spring. Brantford has some beautiful old churches. I think we could stand in

the pews to play while easily practicing physical distancing.


Instrument Rentals

The orchestra has an inventory of student violins, cellos, and violas for rent. The violins and cellos we have in all sizes. There are 2 violas and a half size bass.

Contact Gelja Will or Tina Peeler if you’re interested in a rental. The instruments are good quality, sound great and have been set up to facilitate a positive learning

experience. The sound and set up are very important to a child’s developing ear and their musical development.
