SUPPORTING WYSO
BENEFITS OF GIVING

Over the years, we have heard hundreds of personal stories from WYSO students and alumni about how their lives have been transformed through the WYSO experience. Our donors’ lives have also been transformed. We would like to share these stories with you.

Conducting a Youth Orchestra

THE ENDOWED CHAIR PROGRAM

Of the many opportunities to support WYSO,  Endowing a Chair carries special significance. Almost 55 years after auditioning for the first WYSO orchestra, Bruce Matthews continues to show his support for the organization. His gift, the Bruce Matthews Principal Horn Chair, will ensure that current and future WYSO students will continue to receive high-quality orchestral training in perpetuity.

SPONSORSHIP & EVENT
GIVING

Annual fundraising events and sponsorship opportunities generate funds that go toward WYSO scholarships, tours, private lessons, instrument repair, workshops, masterclasses, and much much more! Your gift helps WYSO keep tuition as low as possible for students and families.
