Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra
Welcome to the Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra
Residents from the Fraser Valley and Lower mainland 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 & Chorus. The Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra & Chorus (CSO) is a non-profit society, incorporated in August 1999. The late Maestro John van Liempt and Maestra Paula DeWit, founded the CSO. It was initially created to offer Chilliwack music lovers their own first class symphony orchestra and chorus. Since its inception, the CSO has grown into a touring orchestra consisting of professional musicians.
The Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra is a professional orchestra.
The musicians of the Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra come from varied musical backgrounds.

The People Who Make Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra
The Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra is one of the only professional orchestra’s in the Fraser Valley and east of the Port Mann Bridge.
The Chilliwack Symphony Chorus is a performance choir and we love to sing for people. We have openings in all voice types. Interested singers must be willing to make a year long commitment and must be able to read music.
The Starlets are retro style singers who will take you back to the Gatsby era (roaring twenties through to the thirties) with a mixture of authentic vintage and modern pop songs arranged to sound like songs of the times, to a 1940s wartime tribute (Andrews Sisters), to swing.
