Stellae Boreales is our premier performance violin choir, the senior students of Ottawa Suzuki Strings. Members range in age from 11 to 17, and most have been studying the violin since age 4 or 5. Many of the musicians have had the honour of performing with Maestro Pinchas Zukerman and the NAC Orchestra. Many are prize winners of the Kiwanis Music Festival and in the Canada Music Competition. In 2007 the ensemble toured Victoria BC; in 2008 the group undertook a two week performance tour of China. The group has also visited New York City, completed our 2011 season with performances in Iceland, and toured Washington, DC in 2012 and performed with the Peabody Institute ensemble. In 2013, Stellae Boreales Violin Ensemble had an exciting Performance Tour in Cuba.
Ensemble members are drawn from the studios of Rosemarie Klimasko, Kit Barham, Karoly Sziladi Jr., Serhii Vyhovskyi, Elaine Klimasko and Karoly Sziladi Sr. .
