GDYO Corporate Sponsors
Founded in 1972, the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra (GDYO) is dedicated to providing music education and performance opportunities to youths with demonstrated musical ability. The GDYO program fosters musical excellence, cultivates learning, encourages creativity, inspires self-motivation, and develops social skills.
GDYO has evolved from a single orchestra to a program of more than 465 musicians, ages 6-18, rehearsing and performing in two full orchestras, three string orchestras, a wind symphony, a flute choir, and a jazz program. GDYO nurtures the top young musicians from over 50 communities in Dallas and North Texas and from more than 120 schools. The GDYO holds a subscription concert series at the Meyerson Symphony Center, performs international and national tours, collaborates with prestigious area organizations such as the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and the Dallas Winds, and provides outreach programming to music students in the Dallas Independent School District.
The GDYO audience reaches over 7,000 each season, and is comprised of community members and patrons of the arts, families of GDYO students, teachers, professional musicians, and other talented young musicians from the program. By becoming a corporate sponsor you not only support the music growth and education of young musicians in your community, you enhance your company brand, build business relationships, and foster a reputation for corporate citizenship in Dallas and beyond.
There are many levels of sponsorship available depending on the size and needs of your company, and we would be happy to work with you to form a customized partnership to best fit your needs.
