The Niagara SymphonyOrchestra (NSO) enriches the quality of life in the Niagara Peninsula by providing professional quality orchestral performances, programs, outreach activities and musical services.

As a music resource serving communities throughout the peninsula, the NSO is attentive to the needs and expectations of the region’s residents and visitors in an effort to create strong and meaningful connections with the public as well as with NSO donors, patrons, funders, volunteers, staff, music campers, students, musicians and other corporate partners.

Our supporters recognize that a strong cultural environment is essential to creating the vibrancy, diversity and success of a community. Your donations, sponsorship and concert attendance contribute to the renewed sense of community within the NSO and in downtown St. Catharines.In its initial year, FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre made a positive difference in St. Catharines:  increased activity in the downtown core; new restaurants appearing; students attending classes in the PAC and the Marilyn I. Walker School of Performing Arts; and the NSO’s record audience make our community buzz!

We know we can create moments that take your breath away, where a community can be proud of itself and the experiences it affords its residents. Thank you for your trust, your commitment and your unwavering support.
