Get Involved: Support the YSO

You, too, can enjoy the satisfaction of bringing the joy of orchestral music to the community. The YSO takes its fiscal responsibilities seriously by keeping costs down, working with foundations and corporations on grant awards, and collaborating with local sponsors to assist with concert expenses. The YSO also counts on listeners and local music lovers to help raise the funds needed to bring this community the best orchestral music possible.

The generosity of local individual supporters allows the YSO to offer orchestral music to aficionados and casual listeners alike. Please contribute to the YSO’s mission, and support this significant cultural asset to your community.
