Community Partnerships

The SPO is also seeking partnerships with business and organizations in our great community of Scarborough:

  • Often, people who support the SPO are strong and vital members of our Scarborough community.  While some of our patrons have only been in the neighbourhood for a short time, some have been here for their entire lives. Some have been to concerts for the 40 years of existence.
  • If your company or organization would like to work together with the Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra, please feel free to contact us via email at
  • Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra was awarded the Canadian Music Centre’s “Beckwith Award” for excellence in our pandemic content, plus the SPO’s long-standing commitment to Canadian composers, established or emerging. After more than four decades serving Scarborough, you can be assured you’re supporting a champion.
  • We would welcome your support and work hard to show ours.
