Music inspires a passion for learning
As the region’s professional orchestra and a cultural pillar in Hamilton, we are committed to promoting a life-long appreciation for music and nurturing and inspiring the next generation of musicians, composers and conductors.
Our programs have grown to offer a wide range of workshops and educational concert experiences led by our own HPO musicians and Composer-in-Residence. From interactive sessions in schools and thrilling, live concert experiences at FirstOntario Concert Hall, to performance mentorship through our youth orchestra, our education programs are designed to engage school-aged children and youth and ignite a lifelong passion for music that enriches our lives.
Music plays an important role in our intellectual and emotional development. With ongoing cuts to music education in schools and community programs, thousands of children in our community are denied access to the benefits of having music in their lives.
Please consider a donation to this worthwhile campaign and help us bring music education to children and youth across our region.
We are excited to announce that your donation will be matched through the generosity of two long-time anonymous donors. Donations will be matched up to $25,000 for a total of $50,000 to fund music education in our community.
