PYO Music Institute Annual Gala

Make Your Reservation


The PYO Music Institute’s 2020 Gala Dinner and Concert celebrates our 80th Anniversary as one of the nation’s eminent youth orchestra programs and marks a decade of serving Philadelphia through our Tune Up Philly program. The Gala also looks towards PYO’s future with a highly-anticipated unveiling you won’t want to miss.

Please join us on Friday, March 27, 2020, 6:00 p.m., at the Union League of Philadelphia to applaud the accomplishments of our nearly 600 students enrolled in PYO’s six program divisions, all who inspire us with their talent and tenacity in pursuit of musical and personal excellence.

Proceeds from the 2020 Gala Dinner and Concert directly support PYO’s Financial Aid Fund, ensuring our students can participate in PYO's ensembles without financial barriers. Proceeds will additionally support scholarships for PYO’s Tour to Greece in June 2020, allowing our students to grow as musical and cultural ambassadors.

Thank you for your support of our students as they develop the skill sets and maturity to become the next generation’s leaders, both on and off the stage.

With all best regards,

James Matour, Esq., Chairman, Board of Trustees
