Conductor's Circle

Why is your gift
so important?

One Signature Series concert costs an average of $80,000 just to put on stage. In order to cover these costs and ensure everyone can attend our concert and education programs, each season the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony must raise approximately $1.8 million in contributions from people, companies and private foundations through our Annual Fund campaign. These contributed revenues ensure that the KWS continues as a vibrant, core cultural organization for our Region and beyond.
