To sponsor a chair is to invest in the everyday life of your orchestra.
The brainstorms on whiteboards, the hours of rehearsals. The number crunching, program writing and ticket printing. The grant applications, the commissions, the creative conversations. The intake of breath before the symphony begins and the moment of silence before the applause.
Become a chair sponsor to go beyond the applause.
Get to know the musicians as they bring your favourite music to life. Be part of the everyday CSO.
$5,000 Sponsor a Principal musician
