Engage, Inspire and Celebrate
The Oakville Chamber Orchestra is proud to have developed numerous initiatives to engage our young people in classical music, and to help develop young classical musicians.
Youth Concerto Competition: Presented by Manulife Securities
Our Youth Concerto Competition has been a great success. Now entering its third year, our audiences have been stunned by the remarkable talents of our Concerto Competition winners. We wish to acknowledge Manulife Securities and the Trillium Foundation, without whom the concerto competition would not exist.

Oakville Public Library Partnership
In addition to this important competition that develops emerging musical talent, we also have been busy building a partnership with the Oakville Public Library. Last season, we held a children’s program that was extremely well received, with a packed house of eager young community members anxious to learn about classical music and instruments, as well as listen to the wonderful story of Peter Rabbit.
