Donor Benefits

When you donate to the Winspear and Edmonton Symphony Orchestra…

You support a season of extraordinary concerts featuring world class artists with tickets starting at $24. Your donation provides 36% of the ESO’s annual budget which allows the ESO to continue to perform exquisite live music in the Winspear Centre which has a huge impact on our Edmonton arts community.

Your gift also supports education initiatives like Young Composers’ Project, YONA-Sistema, and Adopt-A-Player. Find out more about these programs.
You will receive a tax receipt for the full value of your donation.
