Support NYS

As a non-profit organization, approximately 50% of our revenue is generated through tuition fees. We rely on contributions made by individuals, foundations, corporations and in-kind services to continue and grow our programs.

You may not know that:

  • 300 young people audition for placement in the orchestras each year, from over 30 communities in the area.
  • Any student that successfully auditions for programs is accepted regardless of ability to pay.
  • 70 to 100 hours of instruction is provided for musicians each year.
  • 100% of NYS musicians go on to higher education each year.


Your tax-deductible contribution will help us to:

  • Grant over $30,000 in 2015-16 for tuition, private lesson and international travel scholarships.
  • Reestablish the Lesson in School Program for the underserved local youth in the Norwalk Public Schools.
  • Continue to fulfill our mission of providing the finest possible training, practice and performance opportunities to enrich the lives of young musicians.
