Women of Note are women in our community that believe that the arts make our lives better and produce thriving communities that are more enjoyable places to live for everyone.
For the last 20 years the Vancouver Island Symphony has brought thousands of children to hear the Symphony. We believe that all children should experience the Symphony and so each year all students in Grade 4 have an opportunity to hear the Symphony in a show specifically created for nine year olds! Island School Districts pay $1 per child and provide busing. The Symphony raises the remaining 90% of the funds ($22,000) to cover the cost of the Education Shows and ensure that all students can experience the excitement of 45 musicians performing together on stage.
Women of Note (minimum) donation is $10+ a month and this goes directly to support the Symphony’s Education Program - so no child is left behind.
