“Thank you for continuing to be so brave… The production was absolutely flawless. You [navigated] the score,
text, and the movement in a sustained and meaningful way. Bravo! I can’t help but feel both [the] sadness of what a
live experience can offer, and happiness due to the creativity I was able to witness.”

The Edith Lando Charitable Foundation 

For over two decades, Vancouver’s own Edith Lando Charitable Foundation has been a staunch supporter and advocate for BC-based programs and projects that build self-esteem, further personal agency, and offer meaningful skills development opportunities for youth from all walks of life.

Over the years, the Foundation has played a leading and local role in supporting arts-based learning programs for vulnerable young people, commissioning and developing new operas on topical social issues, and funding direct access to innovative mental health resources for youth, as but a few recent examples.

Music on Main is grateful to the Foundation for its continued support of the Kessler Academy program, which, each year, builds confidence, artistic ability, and team-building expertise for a broad cohort of young string players drawn from throughout BC.

Thank you to Roberta, Jacquie, and Gabrielle for your continued generosity, and for your efforts to celebrate and embody Edith Irene Lando’s incredible work and legacy.

The BC Arts Council

Since 1995, the BC Arts Council has played a leadership role in supporting art, artists, and arts workers throughout the province through generous operating and project-based grants and allocations. Each year, BCAC staff, supported by the efforts of numerous professional BC-based jurors and peer assessors, review and respond to hundreds of requests for support from individual artists, emerging and mid-career arts administrators, and arts organizations of all sizes, structures, and disciplines.

Over the past year, exceptional one-time support from the BC Arts Council has made an incredible difference for so many arts organizations province-wide as they continue to navigate the existential challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. Music on Main is no exception! All of us at Music on Main are deeply grateful for what Council continues to make possible – and, sustainable – for artists, staff, and audiences from all walks of life.

Music on Main also gratefully acknowledges annual support provided by the Province of British Columbia.

Are you this person?

This person is very much a philanthropist: they’ve been a supporter of Music on Main for several years, and a generous patron of a few other arts organizations in Vancouver for just as long. Their generosity and care has helped to unlock many possibilities for the organizations with which they choose to share their philanthropy.

With a strong commitment to Music on Main’s vision and leadership, this person contributes to help us continue helping people to ‘listen, together’ – particularly in these challenging times. Since this person prefers to be discreet about their support, we respect their choice to remain anonymous. There are several in the Music on Main family who wish for the focus to remain solely on artists and audiences, and not shift to them. However, to us at Music on Main, these individuals are each unique.

This person could be you.
