The Burlington New Millennium Orchestra (BNMO) is a 30 piece contemporary chamber orchestra specializing in a broad based non-classical repertoire. While primarily an acoustic orchestra, some electric instruments are employed in a modernist context. The use of some electric instruments, primarily strings, is solely a textural choice.
The orchestra is a genre crossing entity featuring Pops, Broadway, Jazz, Rock and World Music, and many of the scintillating arrangements are penned personally by Maestro Cozens. The orchestra performs regularly at the Burlington Performing Arts Centre, an intimate modern theatre space with good acoustics and sight lines.
The mission of the Burlington New Millennium Orchestra is to present unique high caliber concerts to the people of Burlington, Ontario featuring gifted performing artists from the local, national and international arts communities. BNMO will foster collaborations with other local arts groups and engage younger audiences through selective outreach programming.
