The pursuit of excellence is transformative. We know the extraordinary impact the ESYO Experience has on our young musicians, their families and their communities, and we are committed to making this experience accessible to all aspiring youth regardless of their ability to pay. We are also committed to keeping tuition costs low despite ever-rising costs. In fact, tuition dollars account for only 20% of the actual expense. This is why we ask for your support. Your contribution ensures access to exceptional musical experiences for everyone--no matter their circumstances.
Each gift leads to a tangible benefit: a more educated student, a better musician, a young person more skilled in collaboration and cognizant of the importance of community. Your donation is a wise investment in an optimistic future. What do your dollars support? Tuition waivers and private lesson subsidies; participation fees for tours, workshops and festivals; instrument subsidies, just to list a few. We depend on the generosity of individual donors, corporate sponsors, and granting organizations for more than one third of our total operating budget each season--that translates to over a half million in fundraising every year!
