Founded in 2010 as a non-profit organization, Canada Y.C. Chinese Orchestra Association is dedicated to the promotion of Chinese music by performing to the public in the City of Richmond and Greater Vancouver area. Our members include professional and amateur musicians trained in Asia as well as Canada. As a new cultural member of the Greater Vancouver area, we strive to share our feeling and experiences in this new environment through the production of Chinese instrumental concerts or performances. The Orchestra is deeply rooted in the Chinese cultural heritage. Its performance format and repertoire include both traditional Chinese and contemporary music. It also explores new frontiers in music through playing music from different countries. Another important mission of our association is to provide a venue for the professionals to come to work and help the amateurs or beginners for better skill and better performance.
