BC Fiddle Orchestra

Program Outline

The BC Fiddle Orchestra began with a small group of talented and enthusiastic young violinists from Daniel Lapp’s studio. The first performance, in 1994, was at the Opening Ceremonies of the Commonwealth Games. Dozens of young fiddlers, many of whom are now professional musicians, learned the art of fiddling during their apprenticeship with the BCFO which exposes students to styles and genres from around the world.

Included in the fee are 3 private lessons with Daniel Lapp. All members are expected to have weekly lessons with a teacher approved or recommended by the instructor.
