On Sunday, May 19th, the 41st Annual GDYO Gala, A Prelude to Excellence and A Grand Finale, will be held at the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center. As this is the only fundraising event for the youth orchestra so we hope you will attend. The Gala benefits the GDYO Scholarship Fund and the GDYO Tour Fund, allowing deserving students a chance to not only experience the GDYO program, but also to be further enriched by experiencing new cultures while traveling and performing with their peers.
The Gala will be a fantastic finale to this concert season. We are very fortunate to have Heather & Gerald C. Moore M.D. serve as our Gala Honorary Chairs. Both Dr. and Mrs. Moore have been involved in GDYO for many years. Mrs. Moore has served on the GDYO Board, is a past Chair of the GDYO Gala, has held numerous board positions and has donated countless hours to the organization. In addition to her dedication to the GDYO, she has served as President to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra League, President of the Association of Major Symphony Orchestra Volunteers and President of the Texas Association of Symphony Orchestras.
The Gala evening will include the buffet dinner and silent auction before the concert. Following the concert will be a dessert reception. Some highlights of the silent auction include; a 42” Flat Screen TV, trip to Disney Land, X-Box 360, and a priceless dinner for four by Conductor and Music Director Richard Giangiulio.
Please support the GDYO Gala by being an underwriter, attending, and/or donating an auction item. Your participation is critical to the success of event.
