Lerners Chair Program

The Lerners Chair Program is a unique program within Orchestra London. It allows Lerners LLP to maximize their support of Orchestra London in order to attract up to 47 Major Donors to the Orchestra.

In the 2011-2012 Season, Lerners support of the Orchestra in the amount of $10,000 leveraged an additional $115,000 from the community. Donors sponsored a musician within the Orchestra and had a chance to meet and interact with them.

The Lerners Chair Program helps to foster the growth of music knowledge and appreciation in London, Ontario and throughout the surrounding communities in the Southwest Region of Ontario. The Program:

  • Creates awareness of Orchestra London’s mission to bring orchestral music to the community and surrounding areas.
  • Creates excitement in the orchestra’s role to foster the next generation of music lovers, concert goers, and orchestral players.
  • Offers opportunities for communication between musicians and their sponsors.
  • Educates the next generation of leaders about the rewards and challenges of keeping orchestral music thriving.
  • Engage young aspiring musicians through orchestral music in all its forms.
  • Help the orchestra thrive as a performing arts institution.
  • Maintain the value of orchestral music in the community.
