Since it was founded in January, 2004 by Ann Green and a team of musicians and non-musicians, the Cambridge Community Orchestra continues to grow.
The Cambridge Community Orchestra is made up of volunteer musicians and board members.
The “pay-as-you-can” mandate is unique among Canadian orchestras. From the inception of the CCO, this policy has made orchestral music accessible to everyone. Income and financial status are no barrier to the enjoyment of some of the finest music written.
In addition to its seasonal scheduled performances, the CCO performs throughout the community. The orchestra provides learning opportunities for musicians at various levels in their musical careers.
Under the guidance of music director and conductor Sabatino Vacca, the CCO Continues to grow.
The upcoming season of 2010-2011 kicks off with Aaron Copland’s, Fanfare for the Common Man. A familiar brass and percussion piece that has been used by sports teams and in movie scores and also celebrated by artists as diverse Bob Dylan, the Rolling Stones and Woody Herman.
Distinguished cellist, Miriam Stewart-Kroeker, is a featured soloist in Dvorak’s Concerto in B minor.
The evening’s concert concludes with Dvorak’s Symphony #9 where the composer melds his interest in Native American music and African-American spirituals. At the Ninth Symphony’s premiere at Carnegie Hall the reception was one of perpetual cheering.
Savour the musical treats of the Cambridge Community Orchestra at the opening concert of the 2010-2011 season. For additional details on the orchestra, this concert or upcoming events please refer to www.cambridgeorchestra.ca.
