PEI Symphony Orchestra Sponsor-A-Musician Program

The PEI Symphony Orchestra (PEISO) is thrilled to offer you meaningful and personal recognition in exchange for your engagement in the Sponsor-A-Musician program. This exciting new program is the way to directly connect with your favourite musician or instrument in the orchestra, and make a lasting impact on your music community.

Established in 1967, the PEISO is made up of over 60 exceptional community, professional, and student musicians. By participating in this program, you directly support the PEISO’s musical activities, concerts, and at the same time, honour a specific musician’s talent, artistry, and their life-long commitment to making music right here in PEI.

For more than 50 years now, our musicians have been the beating heart of the PEISO. Each person devotes countless hours practicing, rehearsing, and perfecting their art. By associating your name with a particular musician, you are acknowledging the extraordinary talent, time and dedication of that gifted individual and the beloved instrument on which they perform.

You have the opportunity right now to support PEISO while getting to know a favourite musician better. By doing so, you and/or your business becomes an instrumental part of the PEISO’s artistic success, as well as becoming part of the closely knit PEISO musical family.

Who Should I Pick?
Perhaps you personally know one of the musicians – a relative, the child of a close friend, an employee, or a business associate. Perhaps you have yet to meet the orchestral musician, yet love a particular instrument!
By selecting one of our student musicians, you demonstrate inspirational encouragement for a talented youth who is just starting their career by acknowledging their musical ambitions. Our Executive Director can personally help connect you with the perfect choice for you.

Why Sponsor a Musician This Season?
Your support directly assists our musicians, our youth and music education outreach programs, the PEISO concert performances, and also our chamber music events! Additionally, the growing strength of community support helps the PEISO management showcase to government funding sources just how much you and fellow Sponsors believe in our mission of enriching the cultural life of our island community throughout the year. This in turn, leads to stronger support overall for the PEISO.

Here is how the PEISO will recognize and appreciate you or your business:

  • You / Your business name will appear alongside the name of the musician you are sponsoring in our next four concert programs, which are distributed to every patron.
  • You will be personally introduced to your sponsored musician and be invited to attend
    an orchestra rehearsal.
  • A personal photo opportunity will be available with your sponsored musician – a wonderful showcase for your community commitment to display at home or at work.
  • Exclusive invitations to ‘Meet the Musicians’ receptions, and other private events hosted by the PEISO.
    Acknowledgement of your support on our PEISO website and on our various social media postings that currently reach our 3,500+ followers before every concert event.
  • A charitable tax receipt for the full value of your support.
  • You will be able to enjoy the knowledge that you are directly acting to keep orchestral music alive in our community – and are personally an uplifting source of pride to the musician you choose to support.
    The Sponsor-a-Musician program is available to individuals, families, groups of friends, social
    clubs, giving circles, and businesses.

Sponsorships are available at the following levels:

  • Music Director $10,000
  • Concertmaster $5,000
