Auditions Results

I would like to thank everyone who took an interest in the Hart House Orchestra this Fall and put in the time and effort to prepare for an audition. It is a big ask and I appreciate what you did and the strain and even nerves that can result from such an endeavour. I cannot thank you enough for that.

While we did end up with a large ensemble of around 100 musicians, as required of the Mahler Symphony No. 3, I simply could not take everyone who auditioned. There are other ensembles at Hart House and in particular the Symphonic Band and Chamber Strings which also offer a means of participating in an ensemble which I can recommend to those who were ultimately not chosen as part of the orchestra. You can find those groups on their websites.

My hope is that you will again consider us in the future and I look forward to seeing and hearing you again.

Until further notice, auditions, rehearsals or concerts are on hold for this season. Please check back later as there is a chance of some activity resuming in the new year, depending on how the situation progresses.

Stay safe,
