Grants of up to $25,000 to Ontario nonprofit professional, semi-professional, and community orchestras to produce and present professional music programming to the public, provide arts services, and to sustain a healthy arts community. Funding will be provided as project grants to support the costs of engaging professional Canadian artists (conductors, core players / section leads, extra-musicians, guest soloists, etc.).
Project grants do not support core or operating expenses.
In general, community orchestras can request assistance with their self-presented concerts. Professional or semi-professional orchestras requesting support for artistic programming or one-of-a-kind activity should contact the Classical Music Officer to discuss the details of the proposed project. A higher priority is given to orchestras that demonstrate a consistent commitment to Canadian composers and performers.
