The Orchestra at the University of Ottawa is a pre-professional training ensemble conducted by David Currie who is also Music Director of the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra (OSO). With approximately 50 student musicians, the orchestra has two-hour rehearsals twice per week and is compulsory for string instrument majors. Faculty members often appear as soloists, and concerts are broadcast on the Rogers Television network. In addition, the university produces a number of CDs of the orchestra’s performances. Many orchestra members audition and play for the OSO.
