All donations & pledges support the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony!

Joy. Inspiration. A sense of belonging. That is the impact of your gift to the KW Symphony. Together we inspire and unite our community through music; from the very young, through Kinderconcerts, to those in retirement homes, through the Health and Wellness Program. You remove economic barriers to music appreciation through our Bridge to Music program and help create the next generation of musicians through our Youth Orchestra Program. Thank you for helping to spark imaginations and engage minds through music.


Organised by the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Volunteer Committee, this event will take place Saturday, November 12, 2016 at First United Church, Waterloo, from 10 am to 5 pm.

Musicians of all ages and skill levels raise money for the KWS by collecting pledges in exchange for performing at the Music Marathon. There is no entry fee and no minimum pledge. All performers receive a Thank You package. Performers who submit $125 or more in pledges on marathon day will receive an incentive prize.
