With your support, Houston Youth Symphony can help young musicians and school music programs in our area recover from the devastating floods that have affected so many here in the greater Houston region. Many of our young musicians have lost their instruments, or they’ve been damaged and need repairs. Several area schools have lost music libraries and instruments.
To address these losses in our region, we have established the HYS Music & Instrument Fund for Harvey Victims. Your gift today can help us provide grants to young musicians (K-12) to replace or repair their instruments, help us provide funding to school orchestra and band programs to replace items lost in the flood, and to support the HYS instrument fund.
Affected families and school programs will be invited to apply for funding, with applications reviewed by a committee made up of HYS Board members and community leaders. Priority will be given to youth orchestra students from the region, and to area school band and orchestra programs. Application specifics will be available on the HYS website by September 30. Those interested in contributing orchestral instruments in good repair should email [email protected]
