The Orillia Wind Ensemble is a concert band reminiscent of the band that played in your high school assemblies. We’ve got about 45 members and our ages range in between 16 years to 81 years, but we are all amateur musicians who simply love to make music.
The OWE presents a 3-concert series each year, participates annually in Orillia Performs! and in Culture Days and plays at the Aqua Theatre in the summer series park concert. The OWE also contributes annual scholarships to the Orillia Kiwanis Music Festival and each area high school, and plays at area nursing homes at Christmas time each year.
We also own a small reserve of pieces, available to listen to in our Recordings section, in our Media menu.
We are always looking for new members, so if you or someone you know, once upon a time played in highschool and wants to relive those days “Contact Us” today!
