Give charitable donations

As a not-for-profit organization, we rely on the community’s generosity to keep us playing. Ticket sales account for 40 per cent of the total cost of a season packed with vibrant concerts. Annual, charitable support helps keep the ESO experience you’ve come to enjoy available for the entire community ― with tickets as low as $24 each.

  • All charitable donations receive a tax receipt.
  • All donors receive multiple benefits designed to bring them closer to the music. It’s our way of saying ‘thank you’ for your support!

Invest in our youth and become a Musical Creativity Partner

Every year, the ESO delivers music education programs for nearly 30,000 children and adults from Central and Northern Alberta. Business community members, who champion arts education, support a large part of these programs, all of which offer well-rounded student development as part of the Alberta Education Curriculum. Check out our education programs to learn more.

Help underprivileged communities and those in need

Donate a block of tickets and give your chosen charities the opportunity to send their clients, members and staff to an ESO concert.

  • Our First Chair program encourages companies to make a charitable donation to the ESO. In exchange, we donate the equivalent value of tickets to local, charitable organizations so more people can experience the beauty of live, orchestral music. Donors or the ESO can select the recipient organization.
  • We work closely with Kids Up Front, donating hundreds of tickets every year to children and parents who may not have the means to experience the ESO.
