Give the Gift of Music Today!
GNOYO’s Annual Giving Campaign

GNOYO’s 2015 Annual Giving Campaign kicked off in November! This past weekend you enjoyed the Fall Concert and the beautiful music our students performed. As a member of the GNOYO family, you experience first-hand the benefits of our program. These include:
Excellent music training from qualified teaching musicians
Exposure to a wide variety of music styles
Public performances in concert halls and other facilities
Eleven music education and outreach programs
But most of all GNOYO provides a safe, learning and nurturing environment enabling our young people to develop into not only fine artists, but productive young people and citizens.

You can help us continue our mission to provide this music educational programming to the hundreds of children who are participating in GNOYO this year. Tuition and grant funding cover only a portion of our administrative expenses, teaching musicians, rehearsal space, concert expenses and educational programs. Your valuable donation helps fill the financial gap and ensures the future of GNOYO. All donation amounts are welcome and your generosity enables us to continue reaching students with the gift of music.
