Grants to Ontario nonprofit, professional, semi-professional and community orchestras for operating support. First-time applicants are required to contact program staff prior to applying. The purpose of funding is to assist orchestras in producing and presenting art and arts services to the public and to sustain a healthy arts community.
Operating grants support operating expenses of professional music organizations. Grants are awarded to help organizations make or present high-quality work for a wide range of audiences and participants.
In addition to the OAC-wide objectives stated above, the Orchestras program aims to support a range of orchestral activity in the province, including repertoire and programming across the entire classical tradition (Baroque to contemporary). Factors considered by advisors include geographic location, performance and development opportunities provided for orchestral players and the role the orchestra plays in its community.
In addition, a higher priority is generally given to orchestras that demonstrate a consistent commitment to Canadian composers and performers.
