The Oakville Symphony is fortunate to have a wonderful group of volunteer musicians who enjoy getting together every Monday night from September to May to make beautiful music together. We also have a core of 11 professional musicians who help us do this.

Since its founding in 1967, the volunteer members of the Oakville Symphony have come from many backgrounds, and all walks of life. We rehearse on Monday evenings from 7:30pm to 10:00pm in Oakville. We play full symphonic repertoire and enjoy accompanying inspiring guest artists.

There is currently an opening for a Principal Oboe to join the professional core. Read more here.
