Celebrating our 77th Season!

The McGill Chamber Orchestra (MCO) is one of Canada’s most established chamber orchestras. It was founded in 1939 by Artistic Director Alexander Brott and his wife, Lotte Brott, cellist and General Manager till 1998. The orchestra began as the McGill String Quartet and soon thereafter grew into an ensemble which had as its members principal teachers of the McGill Conservatory of Music and eventually principal players in the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal where Alexander Brott served as Concertmaster and Lotte played in the cello section. The orchestra was quickly recognized as an ensemble of international standing.

Vibrate to the Sound of Diversity

The 2016-2017 season is a panoply of lyricism, vocal and instrumental. Together with our superlative orchestra led by our concertmaster Mary-Elizabeth Brown, we will traverse a myriad of musical highlights on wings of song.
