Serving Oakville for 34 years, the mandate of the OCO is to enrich the cultural landscape of Oakville by creating a passion for chamber music concerts at an affordable cost, with a focus on up and coming young musicians — winners from our annual Youth Concerto Competition. The OCO brings exceptional Chamber music to the doorstep of Oakvillians. We have an active outreach program, performing regularly in our community (4 concert weekends per year), local schools, senior’s residences, charities, private and corporate events.
We are a not-for-profit registered charity. Advertising in our programs brings us welcome financial support.
SEEKING NEW FRIENDS
The orchestra, like most arts organizations, runs on a tight budget and relies on much goodwill from its volunteers. The OCO has been a recipient of grants from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, Town of Oakville Cultural grants, and sponsorships from private individuals and Oakville businesses, recognizing the great musical value the OCO brings to our town. The funds raised to cover an honorarium for our exceptional Music Director and our General Manager, insurance, rental of facilities, printing and advertising costs.
In an effort to diversify our financial support and to develop greater stability as the organization matures, we seek additional friends -corporate and private – who, with their pledged donation to the OCO, bolster the cultural richness of Oakville.
We welcome the opportunity to discuss with you how you can support the OCO and build your backyard community.
