About Angels’ Angels:

Angels’ Angels are passionate donors to San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory (SDYS) who believe that music education is a doorway to opportunity for children, and that every child deserves access to quality programs. Our goal is to reach 125 members this year to support SDYS programs in Balboa Park and SDYS’ neighborhood engagement strategies throughout San Diego County.


  • Invitations to three Angels’ Angels Musicales each season. These intimate performances feature some of our most accomplished musicians in premier venues or private homes. Guests enjoy hors d’oeuvres and wine upon arrival and a reception following the performance with coffee and dessert.
  • Preferred seating at all SDYS concerts, plus an invitation to a VIP post-concert reception including hors d’oeuvres and wine after the Ovation level performance at Copley Symphony Hall.
  • Camaraderie with other Angels who believe in the lifelong value of music education.
