Orchestra North Smithers

An unparalleled summer musical experience

Music meets the natural beauty of British Columbia

Since 2013, Orchestra North Smithers 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 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, BC. Director Roxi Dykstra (pictured right) has produced the Orchestra North Smithers program for over 7 years in various formats, each year cultivating an unforgettable summer experience for all involved.


Introducing the Orchestra North Academy Residency


Set in the mountains in beautiful Smithers BC, the Orchestra North Academy residency welcomes a small number of select musicians from August 3-14 to hone and share their craft. With a focus on peer-to-peer mentorship, residents will participate in regular group masterclasses, workshops, rehearsals, and performances of several distinct programs in the Spirit of the North Festival. The 2022 academy residency presents old and new faces with Simon MacDonald, Roxi Dykstra, Judith Souman, Nicholas Denton-Protsack, Jordan Daviel, and Ekaterina Daviel.
