Welcome Seats and Charity Partnerships

Welcome Seats: Welcoming Newcomers to Our Community

In 2018, through a partnership with Ripple Refugee Project, Orchestra Toronto began to offer free seats to newcomers to Canada arriving as refugees or asylum seekers. We are proud to welcome 40 newcomers to each concert.

Holiday Concert Outreach

Each December, Orchestra Toronto donates 250 tickets to our Holiday Concert to children’s charities including the YWCA, the Regent Park School of Music, and the Children’s Aid Society of Toronto, to allow children and caregivers who might otherwise not be able to afford to attend our holiday concert and enjoy the Long & McQuade Instrument Petting Zoo.
