Support the YYSO and YES!
Student tuition pays for approximately 50% of our annual expenses. Fundraising, donations and grants make up the balance. All fundraising is done by volunteers — mostly parents! Our philosophy is to have just a few key fundraisers that generate revenue to meet the other 50% of our expenses. In this way, we can keep our primary focus on the student musicians and the music.
