Financial sponsorships are a sound investment in the future of new Canadian orchestral music.
Esprit invites corporate sponsors to be partners in the creation of a Canadian musical legacy. Each of our subscription concerts costs in excess of $80,000 to stage, with ticket sales covering only 20% of the costs. Our Creative Sparks Mentoring and Creative Leadership Programme, which pairs composers with students to create and perform new orchestral works, costs over $25,000 to produce and our New Wave Composers Festival which showcases the next generation of rising star composers and features works by Canadian composers, requires an investment of over $35,000.
Esprit’s musical activities feature an annual concert subscription concert series. In addition to performing exceptional contemporary repertoire, the Esprit Orchestra engages world-renowned soloists and guest artists for each concert.
Four concerts in the season take listeners through the varied terrain of new music. Esprit concert offers incredible musical moments of great intensity, adventure, mood, atmosphere, and inspiration.
Guest Artist Sponsor
Esprit invites world-renowned artists, composers and gust artists from other disciplines to the stage. Inspired appearances and dedicated performances by exceptional musicians and composers contribute to awe-inspiring concert experiences; complimentary film-installations and dance performers heighten the sensory experience of the repertoire. Esprit remains dedicated to connecting Canadian artists with Canadian audiences, both in Toronto and across the country.
Private Commissions of New Works
From the initial inspirational moment in the creative process to the final performance, Esprit nurtures new works from Canadian composers every year. Commissioning projects provide exposure for new talent and introduce audiences to new musical ideas. Esprit’s stage is where Canadian musical culture originates and gets celebrated with verve and conviction.
