The Ambleside Orchestra is a growing, multigenerational community orchestra based in North Vancouver. Our members enjoy the fun of making music with people of all ages—from 14 to 90-something—and from all walks of life. The orchestra's season runs from September to early June, rehearsing Wednesday afternoons from 3:30 to 5:30 at Highlands United Church in Edgemont Village.

Under the direction of Nicolas Krusek, we perform an advanced repertoire and work hard to improve our level of musicianship. We present up to 10 public and private concerts of varied orchestral repertoire each year, in community venues across the North Shore and in Vancouver.

We also provide scholarships and monetary awards for orchestra members between the ages of 14 and 25. The scholarships and awards program recognizes young members of the orchestra for their contributions and dedication to the orchestra's full range of activities and aims to encourage their development both as musicians and as fully rounded members of society.
