Orchestra Toronto's inaugural 1955 season got right to the point. It had, after all, only one concert. That concert, however, made such an impact that the dedicated 55-member company, then known as The Bennington Heights Community Orchestra, continued to perform until 1998, when it put its magical rings together and changed its name to Orchestra Toronto. The largest distinction between Orchestra Toronto and other ensembles: it's truly a community project, corralling volunteer musicians and a few paid professionals to make up its 90-member team and deliver everything from Mendelssohn symphonies to flamenco concerts.
