Our Mission

The Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra is dedicated to enriching the cultural life of our community through the presentation of musical performances of a very high calibre and the development of a strong and financially viable organization. Beyond the stage, the SPO also support and promotes Canadian composers, artists and talent through outreach programs and activities like the New Generation Composers Workshop, the Scarborough Philharmonic Orchestra Women's Choir, and more.


Currently in our 39th Season, the SPO continues to delight audiences of all ages with its innovative programming, extremely affordable and accessible concerts, and wonderful array of well-known guest performers and support of emerging artists. The orchestra has a long and interesting history, with a mandate to provide music of a very high standard to the community.

Our talented and friendly musicians come from a variety of walks of life: some are professional players, some teach music and others have music as an important and meaningful hobby. All members share the love of music and performing it for others.

The SPO is run by a volunteer Board of Directors and appreciate the support of our many involved volunteers.

Without the generous financial assistance of sponsors and donors, the orchestra would not be able to strive for new musical heights and could cease to exist. We are extremely grateful to all those who contribute to the well-being and future of our orchestra.
