Hart House Chamber Strings

Hart House Chamber Strings is a student-run ensemble at Hart House, University of Toronto, conducted by Oliver Balaburski. They perform three concerts per year including a Pops concert in the Winter collaborating with local singer songwriters.
The Hart House Chamber Strings is comprised of students and alumni from various programs and departments at the University of Toronto who all share a love for chamber music. The group averages approximately 40 non auditioned members which enables them to occasionally divert from the realm of “standard” chamber music and take on more eclectic repertoire.
Current UofT students and Hart House alumni members may join Hart House Chamber Strings. During the course of the year rehearsals take place on Monday nights from 7:30 to 10:00 pm. There is one open rehearsal at the beginning of the year, where interested parties are invited to come out with their instrument and experience a rehearsal with the group.
