Come join us again for another vibrant season of wonderful classical music presented by the award-winning Etobicoke Philharmonic Orchestra!
Our new season offers five concerts to suit every lover of the classics, including one featuring star guest soloist - Joseph Johnson, the principal cellist of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
