A small baroque orchestra, performing in Collier St. Church, under the direction of Oliver Balaburski, was the genesis of the present day Huronia Symphony Orchestra. Now celebrating its 51th season, the HSO is the sole community orchestra in Barrie and Simcoe County. The orchestra is comprised of 55 talented and dedicated volunteer musicians from the community and five professionals who lead the major sections. Members are drawn from all walks of life and reflect the diverse social fabric of this dynamic region.
