Greater Bridgeport Youth Orchestras



To ensure life-changing experiences for new generations of young people—and so that our community can continue to share in those experiences—GBYO invites you, your family, friends and colleagues to support us with a substantial gift that will help our orchestra family grow and provide even more enriching experiences for our children. The need for capital support has never been greater, and we encourage all of you to come forth in support of our next generation of inspired young musicians.

What does GBYO use donations for?

  1. Equipment, such as a piano for Jazz Ensemble or new timpani for the orchestras;
  2. Commissioned works and guest conductors which enhance the musical experience of our members;
  3. Special performance opportunities which require travel;
  4. Financial support for our families in need.

GBYO strives to keep membership costs low so that more families can participate. Help GBYO achieve its mission of inclusiveness and high-quality music education and performance opportunities for young musicians by clicking on the Donate button below! Thank you for supporting GBYO.
