Since 2006 the Oakville Celtic Fiddle Orchestra has provided a fun and encouraging atmosphere to fiddlers, violinists, guitarist, flautists, and bodhran players (the celtic drum) to learn and perform celtic music from Scotland, Ireland, and Cape Breton Island. Musicians and music students age 12 and up work in an orchestra style setting. Under the direction of James Franczek they can be seen performing at their own annual Spring and Christmas concerts as well as at popular celtic events around Southern Ontario.
Sound like fun?
Join us on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. in Oakville to give it a try. The orchestra is open to anyone that has been playing the violin/fiddle, acoustic guitar, flute, tin whistle, or accordion for 2 years or more and is 12 years or older. You do not have to be an Academy of Music student to participate.
