Tune Up and Turn Out for the TSO!

Toronto Symphony Volunteer Committee

The Toronto Symphony Orchestra plays a vital role in the cultural life of our city and our country. For over 90 years, the TSO has brought the world's greatest music to Toronto audiences, and it continues to inspire tens of thousands of young people each year through its education programmes.

To support our world-class orchestra, the Toronto Symphony Volunteer Committee (TSVC) invites you to join TEAM TSO by participating in the 2014 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Recruit your family members, friends, and colleagues to join our musicians, our staff, and other music lovers like you for this fun and rewarding event. Whether you walk a little or run a lot, we want you on TEAM TSO. Every fitness level is welcome.

There are 3 ways you can participate:

  1. Run or Walk with TEAM TSO on October 19, 2014
