Making Our Move Campaign

The Niagara Symphony Orchestra’s ‘Making Our Move’ multi-year major gifts campaign met its 3-year goal to raise $400,000 thanks to the overwhelming generosity of YOU, our faithful donors.  Your investment in our future enabled us to maximize our move to the downtown core with audiences increasing by 60%!.  We have also strengthened outreach programs, with the NSO Story String Quartet touring schools in the 16-17 and 17-18 Seasons, and increased educational offerings with two school shows in Partridge Hall, thanks to the support of the FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre.   

The Niagara Symphony Orchestra adds richness to the lives of the people in this region and embraces all the wonders and beauty of our area.  Thank you for being a part of our dazzling future. On behalf of Music Director Bradley Thachuk and everyone at the Niagara Symphony Orchestra “Making Our Move” became possible because of YOU!

The Niagara Symphony extends its heartfelt thanks to Making our Move co-chairs Virginia Atkin and Carol Appel for their extraordinary ambassadorship in making this campaign an overwhelming success
