The Mary-Margaret Webb Fund for Women Composers

The Mary-Margaret Webb Foundation has agreed to match donations up to $45,000 in support of the work of Canadian female-identifying composers. From Nicole Lizée and Melissa Hui, to Robin Dann and Cecilia Livingston, Soundstreams has a long history of supporting Canada’s finest composers.

By donating to The Mary-Margaret Webb Fund for Women Composers, you will help:

  • Commission new works from Canadian female-identifying composers
  • Produce concerts that showcase premieres by the composers supported by this fund
  • Reduce Soundstreams’ dependence on publicly-funded arts councils for commissioning fees
  • Ensure additional sources of income for composers during Covid

Soundstreams is not only a place of progressive sounds and ideas, but also a place of progressive values, and we thank you for joining us in this campaign for social good.

About Mary-Margaret Webb

Mary-Margaret Webb was a musician and philanthropist whose legacy of supporting Toronto music and arts organizations cannot be underestimated. After graduating with an Arts degree from the University of Toronto, and piano and theory certificates from the Toronto Conservatory of Music, she taught briefly on the faculty of the Hambourg Conservatory, then joined the Royal Conservatory of Music, specializing in the beginning and intermediate students. In 1979, the Conservatory distinguished her with a Certificate of Appreciation.  

Her legacy lives on through the Mary-Margaret Webb Foundation, which focuses on assisting progressive Toronto music and arts organizations.
