Honour and Maestro Circles

Honour and Maestro Circles


Make a major donation to the OSM and be part of the Honour Circle or Maestro Circle, which bring together the Orchestra’s largest benefactors. Your philanthropic commitment enables the OSM to finance its initiatives in fulfillment of its mission of education, access to music, excellence and innovation.

The joy of making music is also about the joy of being involved with the community. I look forward to discovering for myself this vast territory of many cultures that is Quebec, and to get to know this beautiful city of Montreal and its unique flavour that exists nowhere else in North America. I hope we can build projects that bring the Orchestra even closer to the Montreal public, engaging music lovers of all backgrounds with our programs.

– Maestro Rafaël Payare

What our donors are saying…

“We consider that, in life, our identity is defined and manifests itself through the relationships we forge within our communities. We believe that giving is the highest and most compelling expression of a sense of belonging and that the joy of giving, in any capacity whatsoever, is more fulfilling than the joy of receiving.”

– Bita and Paolo Cattelan, Honour Circle donors and members of the Wilfrid Pelletier Circle

“Sharing is a principle I inherited from my parents. It seems natural to me to want the OSM to benefit from this money so that it can continue to create educational programs to develop and attract future generations of music lovers.”

– Marina Gusti, Honour Circle and Wilfrid Pelletier Circle donor

“We consider the OSM to be Canada’s premier cultural institution, and want to play our small part to support the orchestra’s financial health so that it can maintain its standards of excellence.”

– W. Mark Roberts and Roula Drossis, Honour Circle donors
