Make A Life-Changing Investment Today

EYSO and Elgin Community College (ECC) staff have been working closely for months to ensure a safe, fun, and educationally enriching experience for our students.

November 15th marked our first-ever livestreamed concert day. The week prior we livestreamed performances by all twenty-one of our chamber music ensembles. These first-time events take countless hours and months of preparation. Endeavors we joyfully pursue for the sake of making music together, especially in these challenging times.

Did you know that more than 60% of the cost to educate our students is underwritten by public and private foundations, businesses, and people like you? When you donate to EYSO, you make a life-changing investment in the lives of hundreds of young musicians. Your gift of…

  • $100 purchases sheet music for 10 students.
  • $50 helps replace lost ticket sale revenue from in-person concert performances.
  • $25 ensures that EYSO woodwind and horn students have specially created, slitted face masks so they can safely participate in COVID-compliant, live rehearsals.

EYSO’s nearly 300 young musicians are thrilled to be making music together. Your contribution now will have an immediate impact on their success as we prepare for the next concert, Wanderers. Will you consider making a life-changing gift of $50 or more today?

Thank you for considering our request to support our young musicians with a gift of $50, $100, or more if your budget allows.

Kind regards,

All of your friends at EYSO!
