About Us

Just what is Our Very Own?

Our Very Own was created to provide its members and audiences with a greater understanding of the style and aesthetic of baroque music through personal discovery, workshops, lectures, and performances.

Ensemble OVO began in the winter of 2010 with two oboists, a clarinetist, a soprano, a bassoonist, and a harpsichordist. We perform concert music from the 17th and 18th centuries. The ensemble gathers leading young Canadians in the field of historically-informed performance to present special programs in the Ottawa area. Its members have performed with notable ensembles such as Aradia, Bande Montreal Baroque, and Tafelmusik. They share a passion for early music and their enthusiasm is ever-present.

Ensemble OVO is Ottawa’s newest period-instrument ensemble.
