Symphony New Brunswick is a non profit organization depending perhaps more on volunteers than on staff. That said, we have a small and versatile staff that tries to keep the office open each week day from 9—5, so please feel free to drop in for tea.
GM is Jennifer Grant, who started in October 2012.
Production and Personnel, is Christopher Buckley, who grew up here, went away and returned to join the String Quartet, which forms the core of the orchestra. We are most grateful that he also finds time to help with production and personnel.
Librarian is Elsa Paterson, who spent many years in the violin section before deciding to forgo the constant practicing and indulge her love of library work.
Stage Manager for concerts and rehearsals in all locations is Peter Mears
In Saint John, we have some regular volunteers who specialize in the annual plant sale, which many of you are probably waiting for. (details to follow)
We have to thank Richard Sancton for all of the work he does keeping Donation records and sending out receipts.
We thank Christine Chase for her consistently good humoured help with fund raising.
Elsa Patterson has also taken on the role of editor of our newsletter
In Fredericton, there is a group of wonderful people who help at concerts; fund raise; and come up with ideas, many really great ideas! link to follow) and the enthusiasm of this group spins my head!

In Saint John, there is a very happy group of supporters who run the famous annual plant sale, help out at the office and find new and wonderful ways to fund raise funds while smiling.
This very democratic group prefers not to elect a president and can be contacted through firstname.lastname@example.org
In Moncton, there is a fantastic group dedicated to keeping symphonic music at the heart of NB culture in both official languages. Good humour and seemingly unlimited patience abounds here for which we are most grateful.
“The mission of the Moncton Symphony Foundation (MSF/FSM) is to encourage, promote and support, through bursaries and sponsorships, the musical cultural life of Greater Moncton.”
