Music Director's Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Kitchener-Waterloo Community Orchestra. The KWCO is a group of semi-professional and amateur musicians who try to live up to our motto 'Orchestral Music Con Gusto' and bring 3 or 4 concerts a year to the Region of Waterloo.

We meet weekly on Tuesday evenings for rehearsals at the Waterloo Adult Recreation Centre and welcome new members, especially string players.

At our concerts we often bring soloists from the Kitchener Waterloo Symphony and also have initiated an annual concert featuring Kiwanis Festival winners.

Subscribe below to receive information about our upcoming concerts.

Hope to see you soon!
