Welcome to Orchestra at UWaterloo

Welcome to orchestra@uwaterloo, the instrumental ensemble open to students, staff, faculty and alumni. UWaterloo students can earn credit for participation in the orchestra.  In Winter & Spring 2021, a special online substitute for orchestra has been created.  See Ensembles page for details.

Are you interested in live classical music? Come to our free concerts on campus. You can get notices about upcoming concerts by joining our mailing list or checking the Events webpage. Please note, there will be no concerts in Winter or Spring 2021.

Do you play an instrument? Find out how you can join the orchestra, or read about our concerto and aria competition if you have solo aspirations.

Feel free to look around! You can listen to some of our recordings, or read about the orchestra and our music director Daniel Warren.

We keep links to other music groups on campus and beyond.
