Mainstage concerts, education programs and community events are made possible through the generous support of individual donors, corporate partners and foundations.

The Value in Sponsoring your Sudbury Symphony Orchestra

The Value in Sponsoring your Sudbury Symphony Orchestra
SSO is based in the community, made up of professional and volunteer musicians, the vast majority of whom live in the Sudbury area. They are your friends, your neighbors, maybe even members of your family! The SSO represents the community with projects, compositions and collaborations that bring us all together in the pursuit of excellence in the arts and the expression of who we are.

Music education for young people enhances learning, intelligence, tolerance, and cultural understanding. The Sudbury Symphony Orchestra plays an important role in this education as it provides many outreach concerts to youth through the schools and local youth institutions.

Symphony concerts are a common ground for all aspects of Canada’s diverse population. At a local symphony concert you will see a cross section of our community on stage and in the audience. You will experience the thrill of hearing a live performance of classical music from all over the world.

The Sudbury Symphony Orchestra reaches out to minorities, immigrants, and the marginalized, as well as to the committed and the curious through advertising, ticketing offers, and free outreach concerts in novel locations.

We are Your Community. Your Symphony.

The name of your group or company can be associated with the SSO in many ways:

  • Digitally on our social media platforms
  • In our electronic programs (These are available to the general public before, during, and after an SSO concert)
  • As sponsoring a chair in the orchestra. For example, “The Northern Maple Bank Principal Trumpet Chair”. A special relationship can be built between the sponsor and the musician allowing special insight into the role of that musician in the orchestra.
  • As a major concert sponsor, saying a few words from the stage or being recognized from the stage.
  • Signage recognition and/or a live presence in the lobby


  • We can supply a block of seats at a concert for your organization
  • We can supply music at a corporate event

There are myriad possibilities of recognition or ways to be part of your community! Please reach out to us. Phone (705) 673-1280 or reach out to one of us at a concert.


Volunteering for the Sudbury Symphony Orchestra is a great way to support an organization that you believe in. Our artistic, education and outreach programs would not be possible without the generous support of individuals and corporations. Their contributions also helps us to complete important work that makes all the difference to the work that the Orchestra does- both on and off stage. There are many ways for you to play a crucial role, each with their own experiences and rewards.

Administrative Support

Assistance in general office duties, from reception and telephone answering to mailing campaigns, archiving, and research, these positions provide much needed support behind the scenes.


We often have musicians travel to Sudbury to perform with the orchestra. Opening your home to one or more of our musicians for a concert weekend can be a rewarding and enjoyable experience.

Bingo Volunteers

The Sudbury Symphony participates in fundraising bingo in partnership with Delta Bingo.

Concert Support

Our volunteers make our concerts possible! Our ushers, ticket sellers, stage crew and box office staff are all volunteers. If you are interested in participating backstage and seeing an immediate result in your work, assisting at our concerts is a great way to volunteer for the SSO.

Hosting Events

If you are unable to assist at or attend a special event, why not host your own? The SSO will provide support and assistance while you host a fundraising and awareness event in a venue you feel comfortable in: from your home to a favourite place.

Special Events

Assistance at annual fundraising events (such as our Gala Fundraiser) is a great way to get an up-close and intimate look at the many steps involved to make your SSO a success.
