About the Campaign
Revenue from the Brantford Symphony Orchestra ticket sales accounts for only a portion of the Orchestra’s income needed to offer our various services and programs.
Donations from corporations, foundations, government agencies, and caring individuals are critical to our operations. We sincerely appreciate all donations, big and small, because without them, we could not continue with our efforts to enrich our community generally and all the people we touch directly.
Our mission is to provide symphonic experiences, giving people of all ages opportunities for musical growth and education.

BAROQUE DANCE LIVE! – May 9-2020
The relationship between music and dance in the Courts of Europe was symbiotic – the steps and gestures of a dance was reflected in the music, and the music influenced the steps and gestures of a dance. The titles of popular dances – Gavotte, Sarabande, Bourée…, were also the titles of pieces of music written by most Baroque composers like J.S. Bach. Joining us to explain and demonstrate some representative dances, with music performed by the BSO strings, is Jeannette Lajeunesse Zingg, Co-Artistic Director of Toronto’s Opera Atelier and Specialist in Baroque Dance, and two members of Opera Atelier.
