On Tuesday, the NSO received $10,000 from the Telus Atlantic Canada Community Board, which guides the cellphone giant's charity work.
The money will support the NSO's Telus Family Plan program, which offers $10 orchestra concert tickets to children between the ages of six and 14, when accompanied by an adult.
