Support Us

There are many ways to make a difference in the lives of young talented musicians. See how you can lend your support.

With COVID-19 on the minds of many, we wanted to update our community as well as prospective members about the current status at GSYO:

First, with the recent order of "shelter-in-place," the GSYO Office is closed until the order is lifted, which we hope will be sometime in April. Currently, we are all well and working from home. Phone is not the best way to reach us at the moment. Please email us if you have questions! We will do our best to reply as quickly as we are able, but please do be patient with us as our hours vary. If you have specific questions about rehearsals, concerts, or Office-related items, please email Executive Director Seth Ducey at sducey@gsyomusic.org.

Second, we are holding auditions for the upcoming 20-21 Season! This spring we are accepting video submissions. If you have already registered for an audition with GSYO, you should have received an email with updated requirements and information about how to submit your audition video. Understandably, as the format for auditions must change, we have to be a bit more specific about what we need to hear in your video. If you did not receive the email, please reach out to Deepika Kaiwar: deepika@gsyomusic.org. We are very disappointed that we will not be able to meet with you at auditions. Spending time with our members and our community is one of our favorite parts about auditions and it is what we look forward to every spring. Please take care and we can't wait to hear you play! Audition results are still expected to be sent out, via email, in late April.

Lastly, regrettably, we have had to cancel our March 21 Sinfonietta and Galbraith Honor Strings performance.

Be well!
