The purpose of the organization: Founded by Edmontonians of Austrian heritage, the Johann Strauss Foundation aims to support advanced musical education of residents of Alberta, since its inception in 1975:
• Encouraging and supporting young musicians through scholarships, to help them to further their musical studies in the cultural environment of Austria.
• Assisting the local musical community with financial sponsorships. Our support has gone to various projects such as workshops by visiting professors from Austria; aiding youth and senior orchestras, underwriting operatic apprenticeships, and other musical events of special educational value like recitals.
The Foundation is a registered Canadian charitable organization, ensuring that contributions are tax-deductible and that all proceeds are used for educational purposes while all administration is being done by unpaid volunteers.
