What is the "Love of Music Marathon"?
The Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Volunteer Committee proudly presents the ninth annual Love of Music Marathon. This full day Community Concert raises funds in support of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra.
On Saturday November 10th 2012, stars of the K-W Symphony Orchestra will share the stage with local musicians, both young and old, amateur and professional, for this day-long fund-raising concert featuring all kinds of music. Individuals and groups, singers and instrumentalists, join together to celebrate their Love of Music and support the K-W Symphony.
At our 2011 Love of Music Marathon, 270 performers joined with our community to raise over $16,000 in support of the K-W Symphony. The 2011 Program shows the wonderful range of performers who shared their Love of Music in support of the K-W Symphony.
