For over 40 years the Cantata Singers of Ottawa have been thrilling audiences and winning critical praise for its concerts. But to present our concerts, we need your support!

To put on a concert, a single instrumentalist in an orchestra can cost anywhere from $500 to $1000 or more. A solo pianist’s fee can be in excess of $2000 for one concert. The printed sheet music alone can cost $1000 for 40 copies …and the going rate for top soloists is approximately $4,000 per concert!

It will also help us do more outreach to local music students and give scholarship to deserving young singers.
