The Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra and Chorus designs its performances to meet the musical tastes of Chilliwack and surrounding communities. Our concerts will include a variety of musical genres, such as Classical, Light Classical, Popular, Broadway and Jazz. The Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra and Chorus frequently consists of a 40-piece orchestra, 75-member chorus, 12 voice a cappella group, as well as a 20 vice ladies show choir.
Chilliwack residents will not need to travel to Vancouver for their concert needs. They won’t need to pay out of town high-ticket prices and parking fees; instead, they can enjoy locally produced, first class concerts from the Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra and Chorus.
To date the CSO has partnered with the Lions Gate Sinfonia in an exhilarating performance of Mozart’s requiem. This performance took place at Centennial Theatre on April 2, 2011 to a sold out crowd. The orchestra was an integral part of the Chilliwack Opera Troupe’s debut performance of Gilbert and Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance in August 2011 as well as the Mozart Opera Project on September 22, 2012, at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. The CSO did partner again in September with the Chilliwack Opera Troupe in a presentation of Mozart’s Magic Flute in September 2014.
