The home of the HHO is the Great Hall in Hart House, University of Toronto, St. George Campus.
Since 1976, the Hart House Orchestra has provided an opportunity for members of the University of Toronto community with musical training to perform together in a welcoming and musical environment. The orchestra is an auditioned group with a full complement of 80 to 90 musicians. All constituencies within the University of Toronto are represented in the orchestra including students at all levels of study, alumni, senior members, and university faculty and staff. The orchestra is based in Hart House, a unique cultural and recreational centre at the heart of the university campus.
There are two soloist competitions per year. The open solo competition – open to all solo players - takes place in November for the Winter Concert programme. The HHO members’ competition – open to members of Hart House Orchestra - takes place around February for the Spring Concert.
The Music Director and Principal Conductor of the HHO is Henry Janzen.
