An Evening of Harmony
Live at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, June 19

Our virtual gala event scheduled for Friday, June 19, 2020 at 8:00 p.m. on Facebook Live has been transformed into an Evening of Harmony.   We culminate 80 years of work—listening to our communities, learning from them, and growing to support them—with an evening of reflection and music.  We celebrate the next 80 years with a reaffirmation and commitment to our communities (and with a big surprise!) to continue using music education to benefit our children, effect social change, and train the leaders of tomorrow.

Because of you—our patrons, contributors, and community supporters—we have not wavered in our mission to respond to our community’s needs. You have ensured that our mission is rooted in using music to effect profound individual and collective change for the hundreds of students we serve each and every year. Thank you!

Join us on June 19 at 8:00 pm on Facebook Live for An Evening of Harmony to celebrate a spirit of unity through music, to rejoice in the accomplishments of our students, and to reaffirm with us our commitment to building a stronger community through excellence in music education. The event will also be streamed live on pyos.org.

Philadelphia Youth Orchestra is now PYO Music Institute

Our new name conveys the breadth and depth of our programs and the impact we are having on more students in more ways than ever.  We are excited about this change as we believe it is a much better description of our organization, with the potential of continued growth and expansion into the future.
