The Karen Reed Fiddle Orchestra

                     Season  2021-2022

           The Karen Reed Fiddle Orchestra

Over the past 18 months, the orchestra has rehearsed on zoom.  I am delighted to announce that we will begin our  5th season  on September 14, 2021.

 

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.
