Early Music Vancouver’s mandate is “to sponsor musical performances and educational opportunities informed by an in-depth knowledge of original performing conditions, period-specific instruments and broad historical context…” Private donations account for roughly one third of EMV’s annual income, which is used to further this mandate.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2019, EMV has a long-standing international reputation for the presentation, production and study of predominantly, but not exclusively, western classical music repertoires in an historical context. It offers one of the most ambitious programs of its type in North America, presenting and producing an average of 40-50 concerts per year featuring internationally-renowned local and guest artists in addition to administering several education and outreach programmes.
Ways to get involved
Donate to EMV
All donations are tax-deductible, and a formal receipt for income tax purposes will be issued. Donations will also be acknowledged in our concert programmes – unless you have indicated that you wish your contribution to remain anonymous.
You can assure the continued health and vibrancy of EMV through one of the most important tools in your possession – your estate plan. Legacy gifts are an expression of your values, wishes and hopes for the future. There are different ways to do this that can create excellent tax advantages
You can be in good company too! EMV’s corporate sponsors give back to their community through the support of our performances and education and outreach programmes. Their efforts make a meaningful difference for concert-goers and musicians alike. Our wide range of activities offers unique sponsorship opportunities for both large and small companies to support us while also reaching their corporate goals.
Volunteer with EMV
The health of any non-profit organisation relies on the support of an enthusiastic body of volunteers. Early Music Vancouver offers many opportunities for those who are willing to get involved.
Host an EMV Musician
Do you have a guest room that often sits empty? Do you enjoy well-educated, articulate house guests from across the country and the world? Do you like Classical music? Would you like to get the ‘inside scoop’ about performing from a professional musician? If your answer to any of these questions is ‘yes’, then we invite you to consider joining the growing number of EMV supporters who house visiting guest musicians.
