Mission: We enjoy camaraderie, the challenge of playing a wide range of recorder music, raising our level of proficiency and sharing our music with the public.
The Okanagan Recorder Orchestra (ORO) is a group of enthusiastic recorder players based in Kelowna, BC and directed by Peter DeRoche.
We are associated with the American Recorder Society (ARS) as one of only ten recorder orchestras in North America and the only one in Canada.
Our repertoire includes various genres, ranging from Renaissance to contemporary. Members come together to practice regularly using several sizes of recorder – sopranino, soprano, alto, tenor, bass and contrabass.
The Orchestra performs at seniors’ homes, churches, hospitals and at larger musical events.
