Dates of existence



The Chebucto Symphony Orchestra was first established in 1975 with a grant provided by the Department of Recreation of the Province of Nova Scotia. In September 1979, the Orchestra gained the support of the Department of Continuing Education of the Dartmouth Schools. The Orchestra is also a member of the Association of Canadian Orchestras.

The Chebucto Symphony Orchestra was formed to provide a platform for career music teachers, advanced music students, experienced amateurs and ex-career musicians to practice and perform music with a full orchestra. The Orchestra brings high level classical music to a range of local and provincial audiences by hosting public performances and events. All players must demonstrate their ability to meet playing requirements before performing with the Orchestra. As a community orchestra the Chebucto Symphony Orchestra has significant participant turnover. Over two hundred community players have participated in the Orchestra since its inception in 1997. Members of the Atlantic Symphony Orchestra have also participated in Chebucto Symphony Orchestra performances to fill gaps in instrumentation.
