Presentation of the Fundraising Event
On Friday, February 7, 2014, the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal is inviting families to attend its very first Bal des enfants, presented by Sun Life Financial which will be held at the Maison symphonique de Montréal. Under the Honorary co-presidency of Mrs. Isabelle Hudon, President, Sun Life Financial, Quebec and Mr. Bernard Voyer, Explorer, the magical event will honour the 80 years of the OSM and help raise funds in support of its mission.
The ball will begin with the children walking the OSM’s purple carpeting to enter Maison symphonique. A snack and entertainment will await them in the decorated lobbies. The concert will follow, conducted by Maestro Kent Nagano and with ballet dancers from Anik Bissonnette’s company. Finally, dessert will be served after guests exit the hall, and all the children will leave with a souvenir gift.
Corporate donors associated with this new OSM initiative for the young will also be able to sponsor a cause that matters to them by inviting the organization of their choice to the Bal des enfants. Becoming the sponsor of a ball evening means leaving an enduring memory in young people’s hearts.
Funds raised during this campaign will make it possible for thousands of youngsters from every background to attend OSM young-audience programs in 2014.
Message from Financière Sun Life
Sun Life Financial is very pleased to be presenting the inaugural Bal des enfants de l’Orchestre symphonique de Montréal. We are excited to be partnering with the OSM for this event, which will make it possible for children to discover the many talents of the orchestra's accomplished musicians.
At Sun Life Financial we believe that supporting the arts is an excellent way to stimulate curiosity and foster cultural richness, making this partnership with the Bal des enfants such a good fit for us. Giving youngsters an opportunity to hear a top-flight symphony orchestra and experience this magical musical world, perhaps for the very first time, is a distinct privilege for Sun Life Financial.
We hope you can join us for this unique event!
