"I absolutely loved the Donor Open Rehearsal and felt so incredibly lucky to be sitting there and listening to world-class talent during their rehearsal for a major symphony. I underestimated the impact it would have on me. I was mesmerized by the Orchestra, and seeing the players in their 'regular clothes' was something I won't ever forget."—Jan F., Friend of the TSO


To have the greatest impact, consider monthly giving. As a committed Music by the Month donor, you will provide a steady and reliable source of funding for the Orchestra in a way that’s convenient for you.


Minimum gift amount of $10 per month. The Friends of the TSO is an annual donor program. If paying in monthly instalments, a minimum full-year commitment is required.
