Dear OYOA Students and Families:


After careful consideration, the Ottawa Youth Orchestra Academy has determined that we must cancel our summer camp for this year. With so many unknowns moving forward about what will or will not be permitted as a result of COVID-19, we felt that ensuring our students’ and their families’ safety must be paramount in our decision. We know that this will be a disappointment for you, but also know that you want to remain safe and help stop the spread of COVID-19.


In the meantime, we will be working hard to create a plan for safely resuming classes at the Academy in the 2020-2021 season. We hope that you will all join us back at the OYOA when it is safe to do so!




Shannon Whidden

Executive Director
