Orchestra North in BC

An unparalleled summer musical experience

Music meets the natural beauty of British Columbia

Since 2013, Orchestra North has been a place for musicians of all ages and abilities to spend a week learning from world class teaching artists while engaging in workshops, chamber music, and orchestra in Smithers BC. In partnership with the Spirit of the North Classical Music festival the program includes performances in and access to a variety of recitals and concerts in Smithers and other communities each year. Director Roxi Dykstra (pictured right) has produced the Orchestra North Smithers program in various formats, each year cultivating an unforgettable summer experience for all involved. 2023 will mark the first Orchestra North Summer Program based in Prince George!
