As a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization recognized as such by the IRS, the Florida Young Artists Orchestra depends on the financial and in-kind support of the community for its existence. Annual tuition fees are kept reasonably low to give every child an opportunity to participate, and the FYAO offers partial and full scholarships to approximately ten percent of its members, based upon demonstrated financial need. Many public and private schools in the Central Florida area do not offer orchestra in their curriculum, and a growing number of children are home-schooled. For many students, the FYAO provides the only opportunity for these musicians to play their instruments in an orchestral setting.
The tangible educational benefits of music study as a basis for higher learning of all kinds has been well-documented. FYAO students have gone on to become contributing members of society in virtually every field, and their exposure to orchestral music of the great masters will foster their awareness of the essential value of the arts in society.
Your tax-deductible donations of cash and in-kind services allow the FYAO to continue to make this great service available to the young people of the Central Florida area. There are several ways you can make a personal gift to support FYAO’s hardworking and talented young musicians:
