The HPO’s Gallery Series expands to new neighbourhoods Posted on July 16, 2015 The Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra is proud to announce their 2015-16 Gallery Series. Now in its second year, the Gallery Series brings our region’s local art galleries and professional orchestra together to create intimate chamber concerts in inspirational and beautiful spaces. This year, the participating galleries extend beyond the downtown core to Hamilton’s East end on Ottawa St., as well as the neighbouring Dundas and Burlington communities. “We are delighted to partner with the Hamilton Philharmonic Orchestra for the 2015-16 Gallery Series,” says Robert Daniels, owner of the Earls Court Gallery. “Established in 1973, we are now entering our sixth year at 215 Ottawa St. N. and are thrilled to host Hamilton’s professional orchestra in the inspirational Ottawa Street neighbourhood.
