Donate today and celebrate 89 Years of Youth Music! Donate Now

At the Eugene-Springfield Youth Orchestras our goal is to ensure that all children, not just those who can afford it, have the opportunity to take part in ESYO’s music programs. Whether they play for a year, or five years, or for the rest of their lives, the skills and experiences young people gain while learning and playing a musical instrument are beneficial every step of the way. Help us continue making this possible for the children of Lane County!

ESYO is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 organization. All gifts are fully tax-deductible. Feel free to email cynthia@esyorchestras.orgif you have any questions.
