CCO Announcements June 11th 2023

June 11, 2023 

Happy Summer! 



1. CONGRATULATIONS ON A GREAT CONCERT

"Dear Members,

Thank you so much for such a wonderful concert.  We played our hearts out and the audience was fully entertained. Thank you so much for your hard work and patience.  

I look forward to our 40th Anniversary season.

Cheers,

Andrew Chung

CCO Music Director and Conductor”

and from the Chair of Counterpoint Community Orchestra:

“Dear Members, 

What a privilege it has been to be the Chairperson this past season! We have accomplished so much since the COVID restrictions shut us down. 

From myself and all the Directors of the Board, a sincere thank you to Andrew Chung for his continuing commitment to the CCO, to all the members who returned after a two year hiatus, to the newcomers who added their fresh talents, and to the volunteers who contributed their time and energy to the success of our events. 

Last night’s concert was a wonderful end to a season that allowed us to honour an outstanding member in our community, to feature three brand new contemporary Canadian works, and to enjoy the pleasure of playing timeless classics. Next season will be equally wonderful as we continue to hone the skill of performing together and sharing the joy of music. 

Proudly, 

Elizabeth Mitchell

Chairperson Counterpoint Community Orchestra” 

2. THE BILL MCQUEEN SCHOLARSHIP WINNER HAS GRADUATED 

It was wonderful that Jaedon Daly not only played with us last night, but that he has been such a big contributor generally to Counterpoint over this last season, both musically and personally. We chose our scholarship recipient well! We hope to connect with Jaedon again in Counterpoint’s future programming. 

Jaedon has now completed his Masters at U of T. You can see and hear his graduation violin recital on YouTube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=45iQhqiDYMc - it’s terrific! Congratulations Jaedon. 

Next year we hope to have two advanced students join us - the newly-chosen Bill McQueen Scholarship winner, and the winner of the newly created Directors 2023-’24 Scholarship. 

3. NEXT SEASON AND THIS SUMMER 

Counterpoint’s regular season has now finished. Our 40th season starts the Monday after Labour Day - September 11 - at The 519 Community Centre, 519 Church Street, 7:30 to 9:30pm.

Starting with the COVID restrictions and since then, Counterpoint has been holding a Playing in the Park summer series - that starts Sunday July 9, 2:00pm Allan Gardens Park, and goes every Sunday until August 13, finishing with a picnic for all members, whether players or audience members. Please join in you can - it’s fun to play outdoors for the delight of the passersby, and picnic sandwiches are always good. 

Don’t forget our unique opportunity to perform an evening concert in Allan Gardens on July 20, 6:00 to 8:00pm. Music will not be too difficult. Rehearsals at the PIP afternoons on July 9 and 16 and at St. Barnabas Church, 361 Danforth (Chester station), on Monday July 17, 7:30 to 9:30pm. 

If you have not already done so but would like to join in these summer activities, let Daniel Payne know at payne.danny@gmail.com
