ATSO January 2019 Update

The Small Concerts series presented by The Associates of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra is one of the best-kept chamber music secrets in Toronto. Our 2018 concert series was the 46th season of presenting world-class music featuring TSO musicians. At the May 2018 concert, we announced this would be our final concert because of a lack of funds. At least $20,000 per season of 5 concerts is needed (in addition to ticket revenues) to present The Small Concerts series.

To our delight and amazement, at the May 2018 concert a generous supporter pledged $10,000 to continuing The Small Concerts, if the ATSO could raise an additional matching $10,000. Our loyal audience rose to the occasion, and by December we succeeded in crowdfunding the additional $10,000. Because the musicians need a lead time of 12 - 18 months to schedule performances, itís not possible to present a 2019 concert season; however, we are now focussing on mounting a superb 2020 season!

This is just the beginning; the funds pledged and collected will finance only one season of 5 concerts. The Associatesí hope is that our loyal audience and other chamber music lovers will continue to donate regularly; with your help and generosity, you will make it possible for us to present concerts for many years to come. We hope your interest in these concerts will encourage you to continue supporting some of the best chamber music in the GTA, both with your donations and with your attendance!
