We are asking for your generous support in sustaining our legacy-building initiatives comprised or commissioning, performing and promoting new orchestral music, mentoring and educating students and shining a spotlight on young composers and performers with promising new careers. Through our passion for music, teamwork and sense of exploration, we offer audiences music otherwise unavailable in Canada.

Patrons and donors can contribute to:
The Esprit Concert Season
Funds permit the orchestra to encourage and facilitate the growth of Canadian contemporary music and to promote its appreciation in Canada and abroad.
Each of our concerts costs around $80,000 to stage, with ticket sales covering less than 10% of the costs.
Education and Outreach Initiatives
Your donation goes towards funding our Creative Sparks Program, an annual mentoring and leadership initiative that pairs high school students with composers and performers. Our Student Audience Development Program provides free subscription concert tickets for students who would not otherwise have the ability or resources to purchase regular tickets to Esprit’s subscription concerts.
At the core of Esprit's high quality activity is our most precious resource - our musicians.
Our Sponsor-a-Player Program allows you to get to know our players in a more informal and intimate setting than the concert hall. In sponsoring a player, you will directly impact Esprit and enjoy invitations to special events including opportunities to meet your musician on the night of a concert or at exclusive rehearsals, player updates and biographies, and much more!
