Endow a Chair
Your Chair is Waiting!
In WYSO’s Endowed Chair Program, you can create special recognition for a friend, family member, or a beloved music teacher while supporting WYSO’s transformative music opportunities and experiences.
Your chair will hold a permanent position in our endowed Youth Orchestra. As part of an endowment, your donation will continue to support WYSO music programs in perpetuity.
Each endowed chair will be acknowledged on the WYSO website, featured in each concert program, and showcased in a special display in the new WYSO Center for Music.
Donations for Endowed Chairs can be conveniently split into installments by filling out our pledge form below.
Chairs that have already been selected are darkened in the diagram and outlined principal and section instruments are still available to fund.
Join the growing family of WYSO leaders with a gift that will last a lifetime!
