Founded in 1998, the Strings of St. John's chamber orchestra was the first amateur string orchestra in the Ottawa area. The mission of Strings of St. John’s is to provide a supportive environment for Ottawa-area string players to improve our ensemble playing and share a broad repertoire of beautiful music with the community.
The orchestra is pleased to accompany the St. John's Choir, led by our founding conductor, Gordon Johnston, several times each year.
By working to improve the caliber of the orchestra, we aspire to attract additional gifted amateur players and enhance and maintain a reputation that attracts great local soloists. We are confident that artistically excellent performances by local artists will continue to attract, grow and reward Ottawa area audiences.
We are no longer accepting applications for the position of Music Director. We look forward to announcing the results of our Music Director search in summer of 2022.
