The Conductor’s Circle provides a unique opportunity for like-minded music lovers to develop a close relationship with the TSO.

You will enjoy various opportunities throughout the year to further engage with the orchestra and access opportunities to discover the inner-workings of our much-loved cultural icon, including invitations to behind-the-scenes events such as open rehearsals, cocktail events at selected concerts and opportunities to interact with TSO guest artists and musicians.

It begins by simply making an annual donation of $1,000 or more – an invaluable contribution to the future of your TSO

“I consider myself very fortunate being surrounded by music every day. It not only enriches my life, but is a social and deeply personal experience. If music is an important part of your life, or if you would like it to be, then I invite you to join me and my fellow Conductor’s Circle members. Let us discover together, how truly extraordinary music can be.”
