Please contact us to receive the above information in document form by email or fax.



Sponsorship of recordings

A number of recording projects are planned for the next couple of years.  The economic realities of present day marketing of Classical music recordings mean that such projects (even if the CDs are to be distributed by established record companies) need to be financed independently, at least as far as the mastering stage.

Partial sponsorship of a recording allows a sponsor's name and logo to appear on the tray card of a CD, and further mention in promotional materials.

Please contact us to discuss the specifics of such arrangements.



Sponsorship of tours

Touring, both within Ontario and internationally, is at present a small part of Ossia's activities, but is expected to become a larger part in the future.  Under current conditions of reduced government support, transportation costs incurred in touring are prohibitive unless defrayed by sponsorship.

Please contact us to discuss details.



Board of Directors

The Board of Directors of Riverdale Concert Productions Inc. invites the participation of individuals who are interested in building Ossia's profile, audience base and financial stability.

Please contact us to discuss potential candidates.



Volunteer work

The assistance of volunteers would be much appreciated for such duties as delivering posters and flyers, ushering and ticket taking, reception organizing, etc.

Please contact us for specifics.
