The Chilliwack Metropolitan Orchestra is Chilliwack’s non profit, volunteer, community orchestra. Founded in 2008 by local musicians who wished to perform full symphonies, concertos and work with world class guest soloists we volunteer our time and talent to perform four concerts per year for Chilliwack concert goers.  The orchestra has continued to grow and now includes 40-50 members, performs four concerts per year at both the GW. Graham Theatre and the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.  We also have an active Community Outreach Program having  performed  in 2016/17 at the Vedder Legion and the Gwynne Vaughn Plant Sale.  The 2017/18 Season will be a celebration of our Tenth Anniversary and we will be welcoming back our special friends The Fab Fourever, and Dr. Janice Fehlauer.  The Somerset Trio and Violinist Angela Cavadas round out the seasons guests.

Our Conductor, Gregory Douglas Johnson, is now starting his fourth year with the orchestra and the members appreciate his lyrical style, love of music and gentle sense of humour. It his been his dream from the age of 18 to conduct a symphony orchestra. Greg has his Masters Degree in Orchestral Conducting and is also an accomplished musician in his own right.

This season’s Concert Master is Richard Barker, who is a well known musician in the Chilliwack music scene.
