Help Prelude reach their goal by making a donation! By supporting the NOTES campaign, YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE!

$220 towards $175

Dear Friends and Family,

My name is Sydney Acosta. Thank you for contributing to the Elgin Youth Symphony NOTES campaign last year. I really appreciate your support for something that means a lot to me. We are now starting NOTES 2023 and I’m hoping you’ll consider making another donation. With a goal of $54,500, the campaign runs from January 22 to March 26.

This year, we are celebrating our 47th season with the theme Design. Today, EYSO serves nearly 400 students from 70 different communities via five orchestras, as well as percussion ensembles, Brass Choir and Flute Choir. The mission of EYSO is to create a community of young musicians, enriching their lives and the lives of their families, schools, communities, and beyond, through the study and performance of excellent music. By supporting the NOTES campaign, you are impacting the lives of so many, including myself.

I have been playing the violin in EYSO for two years. This program is important to me because I get the opportunity to play and learn new music and share my musical talent with others. Being in EYSO has helped me improve as a person and musician.

Tuition covers only one-third of the total cost of each member’s participation in EYSO. Our NOTES campaign helps keep tuition reasonable and offsets program costs. Donations of any size can make a real impact!

In addition to offsetting the cost of tuition, the generosity of people like you also helps to:

Provide a more diverse repertoire of music.

Support guest coaches and conductors who are leaders in the field of music education.

Allows EYSO to have a broader reach by offering innovative community programs and initiatives.

You can donate online by credit card via my campaign page (visit, select “Prelude”, and scroll to find my name) or mail a check to me directly. Once the NOTES campaign is completed, you will receive a donation acknowledgement from EYSO for tax purposes.

Thank you very much for your support!
