Since 1988, over 20,000 children have been educated and inspired by their participation in the Florida Youth Orchestra. As the area's only regional children's arts organization, FYO is highly regarded for its commitment to the finest quality music education, widespread community engagement, and sensitivity to the musical, social and emotional needs of children.
Currently, there are over 450 students, ages 5-18, from Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, representing nationalities that span the globe and a rich diversity of ethnic background, religion and socioeconomic circumstance.
Again and again, the Florida Youth Orchestra has proven to be the spark that leads to life-changing choices, opportunities and achievements.
But, in addition to music training, extensive outreach activity is a hallmark of the organization, including its STEPS project, which annually provides hundreds of at-risk children with free instruments and music lessons.
FYO's programming also reaches to underserved populations; children with Autism; senior citizens and residents with special needs.
As you can imagine, a program of such scope and quality is costly. In order to go forward, beyond this quarter-of-a-century....we ask for your help.
When you make a tax-deductible donation to the 501(c)3 Florida Youth Orchestra, your investment goes well beyond music training. You'll make a potent impact on the lives of young people, developing life-altering attributes such as self-esteem, responsibility, flexibility and cooperation. Your gift will also have a positive effect throughout the community, with cultural enrichment that touches the lives of all segments of our population.
Of course, your contribution will be gratefully acknowledged and included in all season literature, seen by thousands throughout South Florida. We sincerely appreciate your support and look forward to meeting you at our performances, where you can take pride in the success you have helped to make possible.
