Season End Matching Campaign


This spring, support the continued excellence of your COC Orchestra under Maestro Johannes Debus by participating in the Season-End Matching Campaign.

A generous donor is matching all gifts made before June 30, 2017, the official end of our season.

There’s still time to make a contribution and have your gift doubled to create a significant impact on the work of the COC Orchestra in our communities and our opera house.

Committed to the highest levels of artistic excellence, the COC Orchestra is recognized as a world-class ensemble, renowned for its technical mastery, range of dramatic expression, and versatility in performing repertoire from early music to contemporary opera.

Star soprano Sondra Radvanovsky recently hailed our orchestra as “amazing… one of the best that I’ve worked with in the world,” and it continues to be celebrated by critics and audiences alike as “a gift for the senses” (Toronto Star).

Every note is the product of extraordinary artistic commitment and hours of rehearsal and rigorous training. Your support ensures the orchestra’s continued excellence and range of activities, including professional mentorship opportunities for student instrumentalists through the Orchestra Academy initiative. This project gives valuable hands-on experience, apprenticeship, and performance opportunities to the next generation of orchestral musicians, creating a bright future for opera music in Canada and the artists who bring it to life.
