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 clarinettist, 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, Tafelmusik, and the European Union Baroque Orchestra. They share a passion for early music and their enthusiasm is ever-present.

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