All donations & pledges support the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony!

On Love of Music Marathon day, we celebrate the richness of musical talent in our community in support of our beloved K-W Symphony. Parents, teachers, colleagues and volunteers share with mature and novice, amateur and professional performers the satisfaction of participating in this well-planned, enjoyable event.

Whether you donate directly to the Love of Music Marathon or give a pledge to a Music Marathon performer, you help the K-W Symphony bring the joy of music to children through Kinderconcerts and the School Concerts programs, and to our more senior citizens, through our Health and Wellness Program. You help make music accessible to even the most economically disadvantaged children through our Bridge to Music program, and create the next generation of musicians through our Youth Orchestra Program. Thank you for sparking imaginations and engaging minds through live orchestral music.


Organised by the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Volunteer Committee, the 15th annual Love of Music Marathon will take place Saturday, November 10, 2018 at First United Church, Waterloo, from 10 am to 5 pm.

Musicians of all ages and skill levels collect pledges in exchange for performing at the Music Marathon. There is no minimum pledge. All proceeds go to the KWS.

Performers who collect $125 or more in pledges (cash, cheques, online pledges combined) get to choose a prize from a selection of gift cards at the LOMM. The three LOMM performers to raise the most funds in pledges will be awarded one Bravissimo prize each.
