Join the Guild!

Dear Parents of GDYO musicians:
Welcome to the 2019-2020 Season!  I know you are proud and excited to have your student earn a place in the Greater Dallas Youth Orchestra.  Congratulations on this accomplishment!  We’ll enjoy wonderful music and times together through this coming season, and I invite you to take the next step in supporting the organization by joining or renewing your membership in the GDYO Parent’s Guild.

The GDYO Parents Guild is a membership organization of parents from all nine ensembles whose purpose is to support GDYO through fundraising and volunteering. Tuition paid by each GDYO student only covers approximately 25% of the cost GDYO programs; funds raised by the Parent’s Guild are essential to help fill the gap between tuition and true program expenses.

Additionally, as the second largest funder to GDYO, the Parents Guild supports special projects such as:

  • Enabling young musicians to have the opportunity to tour both locally and internationally

  • Providing opportunities for performance of unique compositions throughout the season.

  • Covering the cost of music royalties so that each parent can enjoy free downloads of concert recordings

  • Bringing music instruction and supplies to underprivileged young musicians in our community, and so much more!

We ask that you join us in our efforts by becoming a member of the GDYO Parents Guild for the 2019-2020 season.

Sincerely,

 

Kari Kirkham
