Quasar creation fund

Since 2004, the generosity of some sixty donors has allowed Quasar to sponsor the creation of a great number of major works for its repertoire. In order to maximize the benefit of each donation, in 2008, financing for commissioning works was consolidated with the establishment of Quasar’s Creation Fund. As a bona fide wellspring for musical creation, it fosters the development of an original repertoire and provides tangible support to composers, whose activities are bringing to life the repertoire of today and tomorrow.


This season, thanks to the Quebec Ministry of Culture and Communications program “Sponsoring Cultural Investments” (Mécénat Placements Culture), the government will be matching each dollar received by Quasar through donation with a $2 dollar grant. Donors will receive a charitable donation receipt for tax purposes.


Donations may be made on the internet by visiting the CanadaHelps website
or by cheque made out to Quasar quatuor de saxophones
(mailing address: 8160, rue Boyer, Montréal, QC H2P 1X5).
