Thank you so much for sharing tickets to a family concert! I didn’t even know these things happened here! My kids had a great time and this is something we wouldn’t have been able to afford otherwise. Thank you!


K-W Counselling Services Inc. client from their Strong Moms, Safe Kids program

The Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony is committed to sharing the joys and benefits of live orchestral music to as many people as possible. We strive to make our concerts as accessible as possible so people can enjoy this unique experience when they need it most. Thanks to BlackBerry Ltd., the sponsor of our Heartstrings Program, we are able to provide free tickets to community members who would not normally have the opportunity to attend concerts. Tickets are usually provided through non-profit agencies serving Waterloo Region.

Please note the Heartstrings program application for community organizations is closed for 2021/22 season. We will be back for 2022/23 season!
