Stratford Symphony Orchestra | Season 15

On Giving Tuesday, Stratford Symphony Orchestra launches our Sound the Music fundraising campaign to ensure the music and special educational programs the SSO has been providing our Ontario community for 15 years continue to grow.

Revenue from SSO ticket sales covers only one third of the cost of professional musicians, venues, and other essentials - including some instruments.

For example, did you know that the SSO supplies the set of timpani drums? Currently, we must rent and transport these from Toronto for each concert. Each drum is a fine instrument that can cost well over $3,000 to purchase. Imagine hearing Beethoven's 5th without timpani!

An Orchestra needs a set of four Timpani drums of different sizes, tuned to different pitches, and a vital part of the percussion family, the largest section of an Orchestra, which, like a heartbeat, gives life to music, keep the rhythm, make special sounds and add excitement and colour.

Your tax-receiptable donation of $50 will make you an SSO Minuet Member and go a long way to help support the activities and essential needs of the Stratford Symphony Orchestra.

Our end-of-year campaign goal is $6,000 by January 1, 2020.

Please help us keep the music playing! Thank you.
