Young people achieve amazing things at GBYO. They develop their talents beyond what they thought possible and feel pride and joy in their accomplishments. The study of great music in an ensemble setting can be a transformative experience for young musicians, and GBYO’s mission is to provide that experience in a challenging, fun and nurturing environment. GBYO strives for diversity and inclusivity in a social environment that is both fun and musically challenging. GBYO's developmentally progressive music program gives ensemble members the opportunity to play at the highest level both individually and collectively. Music is shared with the greater community at frequent performances throughout the year.
GBYO strives to keep membership costs low so that more families can participate. This means we have a budget gap to fill every year. Donations defray the costs of concert production, financial aid, music purchases, instrument purchases, repair and maintenance, rehearsal rental space, retreats, guest conductor and commissioned works, salaries, and more. In addition, GBYO is experiencing a period of intense growth and is looking to expand the organization beyond its current capacity. Help GBYO achieve its mission of inclusiveness and high-quality music education and performance opportunities for young musicians with a donation today!
