Encore! is the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory’s premier event to raise scholarship funds for students in need of financial assistance to follow their musical dreams. It is an inspiring evening of music, cuisine and friendship in the Casa del Prado in Balboa Park. The event celebrates the achievements of our community’s talented and dedicated musical youth and recognizes SDYS’ dedication to help make music education truly affordable and accessible for all students.

Enjoy an array of performances by our talented young musicians, sit by their side as they rehearse, share their delight in making music together. Through this special evening, more than a third of our 1,000 students receive tuition assistance or free after-school music instruction. Encore! gives you a chance to show your support for making music education available to all students.

Scholarship Auction Information

Unlike other galas, ours does not include a typical auction. We want our students and their music to be the focus of the evening. Instead, we will ask guests to sponsor scholarships for one or more students as part of the evening’s program. Each contribution of $1,000 provides one season of support to an SDYS musician via the Annual Scholarship Fund.

This covers tuition, access to instruments, private lessons, sheet music, concert tickets for families in need and more. We are grateful for donations in ANY amount. Please consider donating in the name of a loved one!
