Welcome to the donation page 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 to 5 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.
Please visit our website for concert and event information.
What People Are Saying
"The KWCO has been doing the “gather by the piano” for 35 years. When technology seem to reign supreme, our enthusiastic group gathers together, digs into the wonders of Beethoven, Mozart & Dvorak & brings these composers back to life. -Quote Taken from the KWCO CON GUSTO 35th Anniversary Newsletter"
— Dan Warren, KWCO Conductor and Music Director, 1998 to present
