Private philanthropy fuels the heart of Music on Main’s work. Read on to learn more about how you can help make it possible for individuals from all walks of life to continue to ‘listen, together’.

“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.”

A Music on Main audience member, 2021


What if your generosity could help change the future of the performing arts in Vancouver?

And, it ensures that Music on Main can continue to create exceptional digital and in-person musical experiences, elevate and support artists, and continue to respond nimbly – and, with care – to the needs of audiences.

The Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association  

The Downtown Vancouver Business Improvement Association (DVBIA) drives downtown Vancouver’s social, cultural, and economic vibrancy. Each year, the DVBIA animates downtown spaces, advocates and shares research on behalf of local businesses, and sponsors over 30 Vancouver-based festivals and cultural events that activate the downtown core.

Just like Music on Main, the DVBIA creates opportunities for people from all walks of life to come together, share experiences, and create community. Music on Main is grateful to the DVBIA for their support of our annual Modulus Festival, February 2022’s Songs for a Lost Pod, and other events throughout the season.

The Lloyd Carr-Harris Foundation 

Since 1993, The Lloyd Carr-Harris Foundation has been a Canadian leader in supporting projects across Canada that advance education, further medical research and related health outcomes, and enable Canadians from all walks of life to access meaningful musical experiences. Just like Music on Main, the Foundation believes wholeheartedly that public opportunities to experience great music in welcoming public settings are essential to quality of life for all Canadians.


Over the years, the Foundation has enabled many such undertakings to take flight at Music on Main: free family concerts at our annual Modulus Festival (which returned for a tenth edition this past November), subsidized youth participation in the annual Kessler Academy string orchestra mentorship initiative, and – most recently – support for Music on Main’s summer 2021 series of pop-up concerts at Mount Pleasant Park. In each of these instances, the Foundation has broken down barriers to musical access and engagement for audiences of all backgrounds, and enabled connections between artists and audiences to thrive, and we are grateful.

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.
