An investment in Orchestras Canada is an investment in Canadian orchestras.
Canadian orchestras have made exceptional progress over the last five years. Nationally, we have seen bigger and more diverse audiences, innovative community engagement programs, international kudos for our flagship ensembles, new initiatives in electronic media, strong volunteer, artistic and management leadership, and an overall improvement in the financial health of orchestras.
Ours is a lively and vital sector. However, at this time of global financial turmoil, Canadian orchestras have become vulnerable to reductions in consumer spending, competition in the philanthropic marketplace, and lower income from endowment funds.
Now, more than ever, Canadian orchestras need a credible and united national voice – a trusted and effective organization that can focus the individual efforts of our members for maximum impact.
With your help, Orchestras Canada can increase our advocacy, support and leadership development work on behalf of Canadian orchestras.

Small Budget Orchestra Support
