Karen Reed Fiddle Orchestra
I am delighted to announce this fall that we began our 6th season. We invite you to our Christmas Concert December 3, 2022
The Karen Reed Orchestra was formed in 2017 when a number of fiddlers in Southwestern Ontario expressed interest in joining an orchestra and asked me if I would consider the position of Director/Conductor. I excitedly agreed.
My vision of the orchestra is to bring together fiddlers of all ages and abilities and perform a mix of Canadian Old time and other forms of Canadian fiddling styles with full arrangements for Violin 1, 2, 3, and 4.
My goal is to empower the players both individually and as a unified body of players, by building confidence, creating community and expand horizons with respect to styles, technique, and overall musicianship through arrangements she has composed with intention to create a place of growth and accomplishment.
As an instructor, promoter of Canadian fiddling, workshop facilitator, jam leader, and fiddle competition judge, performer, entertainer and educator, I approach all endeavours from a holistic perspective.
The orchestra is filled with members who are hard working, committed, friendly fiddlers who share the passion of the Canadian fiddle culture.Interested in becoming a member? Contact Karen.
We invite you to have a peak into our first 3 seasons.
Season 1 – 2017 – 2018
Season 2 – 2018- 2019
Season 3 – 2019-2020
