The Orchestra

Since 1976, the Hart House Orchestra has provided an opportunity for musical fellowship among members of the University of Toronto community with training and interest in performing symphonic works. The Orchestra is based in Hart House, a unique cultural and recreational centre at the heart of the University of Toronto, at the St. George campus.  Membership is determined annually by audition, which is open to university students at all levels of study, alumni, faculty, staff and Hart House senior members. The Orchestra rehearses in the Great Hall at Hart House, a famous concert venue in the city of Toronto, where regular musical events are presented featuring world class musicians.

In a typical season the HHO performs three concerts in the Great Hall and one concert in another city in Ontario, Quebec or the northern United States in co-operation with a not-for-profit community organization or in exchange with another ensemble. In February 2017 the HHO performed for the first time at Carnegie Hall in New York City. Other fundraising partnerships include MAB-MacKay Foundation in Montreal and the Canadian Diabetes Association in Kingston.
