GOING VIRTUAL: Encore! Annual Scholarship Fundraiser 2020

May 2, 5:00 pm

Celebrating the 10th Anniversary of SDYS’ Community Opus Project

We’re working to deliver an engaging, VIRTUALLY HOSTED Encore! celebration.
Stay tuned for more details.

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 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, and share their delight in making music together. Encore! gives you a chance to show your support for making music education available to all students.
