The Impact of Your Gift

WYSO’s mission is to enrich lives by providing transformational musical experiences and opportunities. Numerous studies have demonstrated that children who study music are not only able to apply themselves better but that specific skills, such as math, are enhanced by the study of music. Add to that the fact that a better-focused child is more easily able to learn a variety of different lessons that apply not only to school but to life. The impact you make when you give is not only on the musical world but also on a child who will develop into a contributing member of society.

Your gift allows children to learn and develop life skills such as:

  • Teamwork
  • Leadership
  • Patience
  • Creativity
  • Problem Solving
  • Dedication
  • Preparation

Your Gift Makes a Difference

The need for musical education for our youth has never been more important and WYSO plays a critical role in ensuring that young, dedicated musicians with the ability and desire to learn have a place in our orchestras. WYSO cannot rely on fees alone to support the outstanding musical opportunities provided to its members. In fact, member fees cover less than 30% of the costs of WYSO’s programs.

Rehearsals, performances, guest artist performances, master classes, side-by-side performances with professional orchestras and ensembles, statewide and international touring are all part of the WYSO musical experience. With over 4,500 alumni members and their families, the WYSO experience reaches a broad and diverse group of youth.

Gifts to WYSO support:

  • Student Tuition Scholarships
  • Private Lesson Scholarships
  • Group lessons & instruction
  • Chamber Music Program Scholarships
  • Summer Camps
  • Instruments
  • Master Classes and Professional Coaching
  • Sheet music
  • In-State, National, and International Tours
