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.
