Your support. In over 27 years of presenting concerts in Sidney we have never been in the red. However, our financial situation has always been tight. If 100 more folks attended each concert it would make quite a difference to our bottom line. Please support us by attending our concerts, and encourage your family and friends to come as well.

The SCO is a registered charity and gratefully accepts donations through the Canada Helps service. Please click on the following link to Donate Now.

Strong community support makes the difference!

To continue the development of classical music in Sidney and Saanich, the Sidney Classical Orchestra requires strong financial support. Ticket sales account for only part of our budget, with the remaining revenue generated from fundraising, grants, individual donations, gifts in kind and corporate sponsorship.

Sponsorship may be a gift or service in kind or cash. If you would like to participate, please contact us ( so that we can explain the many ways we can create awareness for you or your company in association with our concerts and special events. Participation has its advantages. Let us design a sponsorship program for you.
