Regina Symphony Orchestra
Subscription sales + Corporate and individual fundraising and membership acquisition
“Although I had reservations about everything ‘telemarketing-related,’ I decided to take a risk and try one subscription campaign with PassionArts. Results were so impressive that after only one week of this campaign, I offered them to do a corporate fundraising campaign, and now we are getting ready for an individual fundraising campaign. PassionArts redefined the ‘telemarketing’ term. Their callers are very well-educated and well-mannered professionals, and I would recommend them to anyone without a doubt.”
About this client
The Regina Symphony Orchestra (RSO) began as the Regina Philharmonic Society in 1908 under the leadership of Scottish immigrant Franklin L. Laubach. Over seven decades the Society evolved and changed names many times, finally becoming the RSO in 1976. In the last half of the 20th century the orchestra endured steady growth thanks to public funding, the hiring of first-rate musicians and instructors, and the move to its new residence at the Centre of the Arts (currently the Conexus Arts Centre). The RSO currently performs about 20 times over a 39-week season, with genres ranging from Masterworks to Pops. The RSO is an integral part of the cultural community in southern Saskatchewan, which is expressed through their involvement with First Nations youth, educational activities and the free concerts they put on throughout the community. Over the past century the RSO has established a tradition of excellence, dedication and determination that will carry on and motivate them for future decades to come.
