About Bravo!:

Bravo members are passionate donors to San Diego Youth Symphony (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 100 members to raise $40,000 annually to support SDYS programs in Balboa Park and SDYS’ neighborhood engagement strategies throughout San Diego County.


  • Invitations to three Socials each season. These intimate performances feature some of our most accomplished musicians in premier venues. Guests enjoy small bites and wine upon arrival, and a reception following the performance with coffee and dessert.
  • Preferred seating at all SDYS concerts.
  • Friendship with other Bravo! members who believe in the lifelong value of music education.


Silver members: $400 single/$800 dual
    (Tax deductible portion $325 single/$650 dual)

Gold members: $600 single/$1200 dual • Gold members receive ticket(s) to all SDYS ticketed concerts.
