POSTPONED – 13th Annual General Meeting of the Open Air Orchestra Society

Due to concerns over the recent COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) outbreak, the Open Air Orchestra Society board has decided to postpone our Annual General Meeting that was intended to be held on Sunday, March 29, to a later, indeterminate date. Once we know that it is safely possible for all society members to participate in the annual general meeting, we will announce a new date and time.

Open Air Orchestra Society

The Open Air Orchestra Society was incorporated as a non-profit society in the winter of 2007. Led by a group of amateur musicians who loved their community music group, The Carnival Band, the society was formed to promote ensemble playing and advocacy throughout the city. In 2015, our society then created a daughter projected called The Greenhorn Community Music Project to increase access to musical mentorship and education to children of all ages.

We strive to build partnerships with Vancouver’s rich resource of professionally trained musicians to conduct public workshops in creative performance. We focus on culturally diverse and locally composed musical performance, with the vision of fostering community spirit, empowerment, creativity, and skill.
