On the future of Ottawa Chamberfest

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Ottawa Chamberfest—30 years of changing lives through music. As we approach this exciting milestone, we find ourselves at a critical juncture. Last year saw our most successful festival since 2019, but seismic shifts in government grants have destabilized the organization’s future. Likewise, costs have grown at an alarming rate over the past few years. Paying artists fairly and producing best-in-class events while keeping ticket prices affordable has become extremely difficult. We need your help.

Our 30th Anniversary Campaign aims to raise $100,000 in advance of our upcoming summer festival. This goal is ambitious, but these funds are crucial as we work to offset the loss of grant revenue. Funds raised through this campaign will support our best-in-class Summer Festival, our beloved year-round Concert Series, and our vital Community Engagement and Education programming. They will help position the organization for continued success.

Please consider donating in whatever amount feels comfortable. If you want to help us reach our goal faster, you may opt to become a Chamberfest Champion. A donation of $250 or more will earn you this prestigious title, special recognition at our festival, and an exclusive donor pin commemorating our anniversary.

Together, we can ensure that Chamberfest continues to thrive for all of us and for generations of music lovers to come. Thank you.

Thank you to our Campaign Donors.

With special thanks to our Chamberfest Champions.
