Nova Musica is an adult community orchestra located in Edmonton, Alberta. Its members meet together once a week to play orchestral music. Conducted by Edmonton Symphony Orchestra trumpet player Bill Dimmer, Nova is a dynamic and social group, with both music-making and having fun equally important. We give multiple charitable fundraising and goodwill concerts throughout our September-June season.
Making music isn’t only for the pros!
Music-making doesn’t stop when you grow up. While one might not take lessons anymore or have much time to practice between work/home commitments, the act of playing music should not be left only to kids or to the pros. Edmonton has a thriving amateur music scene. Countless people have continued or revitalized their musicianship through local community groups headed by some of the finest musicians in Edmonton.
Nova is a non-auditioned group. Except for the wind sections, which need to maintain a specific number of players, anyone able may join.
Currently, we have positions open for Violin, Viola, Cello, Bass, Horns, Trombone, Tuba, Bassoon and Trumpet.
