Tune Up and Turn Out for TSO!

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 continues to inspire over tens of thousands of young people each year through its education programmes.

You are invited by the Toronto Symphony Volunteer Committee (TSVC) to join TEAM TSO and support our world-class orchestra by participating in the 2013 Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. Recruit your family members, friends, and co-workers to join our musicians, staff, and other music lovers like you for this fun and rewarding event. Whether you run a lot or walk a little, we want you on TEAM TSO. Every fitness level is welcome.
