Patrons Circle

The arts have always depended on patrons, those people who recognize the value of investing in the arts in our community, and the Vancouver Symphony could not exist without these dedicated supporters.

Patrons not only make it possible for the VSO to perform each season with the world’s best guest conductors and soloists, but also make an investment in the future of classical music in our great city, creating a legacy of live symphonic music for generations to come.

The Vancouver Symphony is deeply grateful to its Patrons at all levels of giving and is pleased to offer exclusive opportunities to meet the guest artists and members of the orchestra in appreciation of your support.

Donations to the Vancouver Symphony are always gratefully received and are tax creditable!
