Since its inception in 1981, the Kanata Symphony has succeeded in providing the community with a rich heritage of orchestral concerts and events.
A typical season for the Kanata Symphony begins with the fall family concert. This event traditionally has a musical theme and provides the audience (both young and old) with not just an orchestral concert but an entertaining, enlightening and educational experience. The symphony also presents traditional Christmas, winter and spring classical concerts in which both professional and aspiring young musicians have performed as soloists with the orchestra.
Over the years, the orchestra has performed with various groups such as ballet, magicians, Kiwanis Clowns, Scouts, with themes such as Halloween, Celebrating Canada, International Music, and Dancing through the Ages. Guest performers have included Kanata mayors and members of the City Council.
Our members are from all ages and walks of life, from high school students to experienced amateurs to semi-professional and professional musicians.
