About Us

History and Mission

The Ottawa West Junior Music Club (OWJMC) was founded in 1945 by music teachers and volunteers from the community. It provides young music students (instrumentalists up to age 21 and vocalists up to age 25) with performance experience in a non-competitive recital atmosphere.

More detailed history on Ottawa Music Clubs can be found within The Canadian Encyclopedia.

Concert Information

It is important to adhere to the OWJMC Covid-19 Policy in order to ensure everyone's safety.

NEW*** As of January 2022, the Woodroffe United Church requires that anyone entering the church will need proof of two vaccinations, and children between the ages of 5 to 12 are required to provide proof of at least one vaccination. In order to comply with this new requirement, please make sure that you have proof of vaccination readily available when you arrive. This means that all persons over the age of 5 must be vaccinated with at least one shot to attend.
We thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
