More Information About DYAO’s 40th Anniversary Gala

It is with great excitement we invite your participation in a very special event.  On March 18th, 2018 at 5:00 PM we will host our 40th Annual Gala.  The proceeds from this gala support the professional-level training students receive and our multitude of performances that have strengthened the cultural fabric of Colorado for the last 40 years.  At the Wellshire Inn and Event Center, you’ll be treated to an evening of inspiring stories from our 40 year history, stunning student performances from today and years past, and meaningful connections with individuals who value the arts as deeply as yourself.

Recognized for national artistic excellence by the Denver Mayor’s Office, DYAO provides the finest possible youth orchestra programs, inspires and educates young musicians through the performance of great works of music, and offers valuable cultural opportunities to the community.  The organization’s five orchestras, chamber ensembles, and group strings classes train nearly 300 students, ages seven to twenty-three, from approximately 100 schools across Colorado.  We are proud to be supported through government grants such as the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, as well as individual contributors and corporate partners.  Won’t you join our esteemed list of supporters?

Thank you in advance for your support of the future of orchestral music in Colorado – with your support we can continue to inspire and educate young musicians through great music!
