What are the benefits of orchestras in our communities?

Many of our community orchestras and other arts organizations are having to close their doors. We want to keep ours open. Please help by sending us a gift today. Use this "Donate" button to choose your own amount. You may include a note if you wish.

  

HELP us continue to present concerts for YOU! 

 Why do we need YOUR support? 

The Southland Symphony Orchestra relies significantly on the generosity of individuals, businesses, foundations and government entities. While “concert door donations” are of tremendous help, they cover less than one-third of the Orchestra's operating budget. Your support will help the organization achieve a balanced budget each year. 

  

Every great city deserves a great orchestra, and as one of Ontario's key new cultural treasures, it is critical that the SSO continues to provide the community with its core group of world-class musicians. The SSO provides audiences of all ages with high quality artistic performances, while bringing internationally renowned guest artists to the Inland Empire. In addition, the Orchestra is looking to the future, planning to serve more than 10,000+ students annually through inspirational and educational programs and outreach initiatives. 

  

You can make a difference today by supporting the Southland Symphony Orchestra with a gift of any size. We invite you to make a tax-deductible donation which will help to sustain the SSO as YOUR Orchestra, while enhancing the Orchestra's impact through critical arts education offerings for area youth.
