JDI Sponsors New Brunswick Youth Orchestra


J.D.Irving Limited has been a presenting sponsor of the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra for over 10 years and is proud to support them this year with a donation of $5 000. 

“Financial support, from organizations like JDI, enables the New Brunswick Youth Orchestra (NBYO) to provide musical education, coaching and programs to more than 85 youth orchestra musicians every year. It helps us mentor young musicians for a minimum of 5 rehearsal-concert weekends each season, and during other public appearance and pre-season training camps. Our young musical ambassadors are being groomed to become tomorrow's leaders," said Don Matheson, Chief Operating Officer, NBYO.
