We never forget our first time, whatever it may be. The emotions, the sensations, the exhilarating pleasure of experiencing a unique moment.

Perhaps you may be thinking of making your very first donation to OM. It’s the easiest and most effective way to support your orchestra.

With this gesture, you are enabling us to realize a great ambition: to offer a first time, whether it be a first performance on stage for up-and-coming young performers, or a first visit by the OM to a hospital or nursing home to offer the curative power of music to those who most need it.

Season after season, thank you for making the OM your orchestra, the one that resonates in the heart of our community.

The values that unite us

Testimonies

  1. Caroline-Sara Tremblay, donor since 2008

    “I support the Orchestre Métropolitain financially because I think it’s important to help local artists and cultural institutions grow and gain recognition while offering Montrealers a variety of quality events.”

  2. Dr. Hilliard Goldfarb, donor since 2012

    “It is crucial to maintain and strengthen that heritage. Non-profits like the OM critically need to build their endowments, it is the financial lifeblood in both good and challenging times to ensure that generations yet unborn will know the passion, refuge, and solace to be found, among others, in Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Mahler, Shostakovich, Ravel, Hétu, and future visionary composers.”

  3. Olivia Gomez, donor since 2022

    “I support the Orchestre Métropolitain because I believe in its musical mission. Making music accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds benefits everyone. By making a donation, regardless of the amount, I believe that I’m helping make this mission a reality.”

  4. Anne-Marie Dupont, donor since the OM’s founding

    “I support the Orchestre Métropolitain because I firmly believe in what it brings to audiences, people and Montrealers in particular. You can feel the connection between the musicians and their conductor. You can feel that they want to give their all, and it’s a real pleasure because they’re communicating that with the audience.”

  5. Jean Duclos, donor since 2018

    “I support the Orchestre Métropolitain because I believe that classical music needs to be accessible to everyone. The OM gives concerts at the Maison symphonique and across the city, in addition to putting on events for children.”
