Etobicoke Philharmonic Orchestra

2020/2021 Season

Celebrating our diamond Jubilee season!

For 60 years, EPO has performed live classical music in Etobicoke and we won’t let a pandemic stop us!

We’ve been rehearsing safely to prepare a re-imagined season opening concert for you, in ensembles and settings you’ve never seen before!

Summer Winds

As soon as the weather allowed, the EPO principal woodwind players came together for backyard rehearsals.

In July and August they performed one hour concerts in gazebos and courtyards of various Etobicoke retirement homes, with Music Director Matthew Jones pivoting to new roles as Master of Ceremonies and special guest recorder player.

Residents were treated to selections written for wind quintet as well as arrangements of orchestral works by flutist Lauren Yeomans.

Violin and Oboe Duo

Concertmaster Mark Whale and principal oboe Cristina Sewerin were delighted to return to Tapestry retirement home in early September with an eclectic program of duets and solo works for violin and oboe. Breezy conditions did not dampen spirits and it was EPO’s pleasure this summer to continue bringing wonderful music safely to our audiences!
