Music is the universal language. It speaks to us on an
emotional level and allows the expression of thoughts and feelings that
canít be put into words. Music is education, music is entertainment,
and music is an investment in our spiritual well-being. Orchestra
London understands how important music is for our city and our community.
Orchestra London officially incorporated in 1957, 50 years ago. Since
then, we have been performing, educating, entertaining, and growing with the
people of London. As we celebrate the end of our 50th anniversary season and
move into the 51st, we are inviting
businesses, community organizations, and individuals to share in the
excitement of live music, be it through a subscription to one of our
fantastic concert series
or through a
special anniversary gift
There are a number of ways to join in this city-wide
celebration including subscription purchases and donations. However you
decide to participate, the result is a continuation of the cultural life of
our city and the prospect of an exciting future.
Music brings people together. It is an experience that
strengthens community ties by creating a deeper understanding of the
cultural heritage that helped shape Canada. It is an experience that
promotes understanding between diverse cultures by introducing sounds Ė old
and new - from all over the globe.
