The Timmins Symphony Orchestra and chorus are looking for new musicians and singers to join our music family. If you currently play or have previous experience playing an instrument of the orchestra, we want to talk to you. If you like to sing and would like to join an active group of singers please get in touch. Singers need not read music and need not audition.
The Timmins Symphony Chorus was formed in 2004 and its membership has grown to upwards of 45 members. The Chorus has performed such ambitious works as Beethoven's 9th Symphony, Mozart's Requiem, Fauré's Requiem, Brahms' Requiem, selections from Carmina Burana and Handel's Messiah.
Join the Timmins Symphony Chorus. Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings 7 to 9 pm and take place at St. Matthew's Cathedral, 331 Fifth Avenue. The annual membership fee is $40.00 which includes all music for rehearsals and performances.

We have Workshops, Master Classes and Recitals throughout the year. Workshops are open to the public and include such topics as making instruments. Master Classes are for advanced students and they are given by the Timmins Symphony’s guest artists. Recitals give you the opportunity to perform in public, to family and friends.
Some students study for Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) exams . You can discuss this with your teacher who will then ensure that the appropriate syllabus is followed and that you are fully prepared for the exam. We encourage students to participate at the Porcupine Music Festival, Timmins’ own renowned adjudicated annual community music festival. Your teacher will make sure that you are fully prepared for this festival which takes place in the spring. Also each Spring, the School of Music holds an adjudicated Scholarship Competition which is open to every student and we encourage you to participate. The awards are given out at a Main Series Concert.
