I was thrilled to hear the quality of music-making at the concert at St. James’ this afternoon. The Divertimento and the Vivaldi were particularly well performed and I was delighted with the way the children did so well with the Toy Symphony. It is such a treat to hear performers sounding like real chamber musicians.

I brought a carload of audience members down from Bracebridge and everyone was very excited with the entire concert. We’ll be looking forward to the rest of the series. Congratulations!

What a marvellous concert this afternoon!... The programme was quite impressive with such vitality, clarity and perfection. It was marvellous and I thank you so much for this opportunity to hear such expertise and joy that touched my heart and made it swell with gratitude.

A patron from Orillia

Thanks again for the joyful afternoon yesterday. When our kids told their Dad about the concert, all they talked about were the kids and their instruments, so you achieved an impression! Well done.

Kristine Riedel-Fiddick from Orillia

I’m congratulating you on your stupendous presentation. You and Caroline are such unbelievable assets to Orillia’s music community. Never do I recommend anyone unless they’re stellar. You hit the jackpot! Thanks for your wonderful contributions.

Paul Gockel

I must tell you what a wonderful time I had watching and listening to your chamber music concert today. I was completely blown away by the amazing talent and skill of all the musicians. The children actually brought a tear to my eye when they began playing. Thanks again, I’ll be watching for more concert announcements.

Liz Taylor from Orillia

My daughter and I were thoroughly rapt with your concert at St. James’. I would like to consider sponsoring further through my business.

About Past Performances

Now in our 5th concert season! Since 2011, Chamber Music Orillia (CMO) has been presenting a varied and intriguing selection of concerts in Central Ontario. Audiences are drawn to the excitement of live classical music coupled with the intimacy of works for small ensembles. Collaborations with Albert Greer, the Muskoka Concert Association, and the Barrie Concert Association have placed CMO at the centre of high-quality, classical music making in Simcoe County and Central Ontario.

CMO is committed to educational outreach! Musical youth are given unique performing opportunities through the CMO Young Performers programme, and the CMO Youth Choir, after one year, has earned a reputation as an outstanding musical ensemble for young singers.
