Encore! Annual Scholarship Fundraiser 2021

Jun 12, 5:00 pm

Celebrating 75 Years of Families

Event Details

June 12, 2021
Hyatt Regency Mission Bay, Regatta Pavilion
1441 Quivira Rd, San Diego, CA 92109

For 75 years, SDYS has worked to provide outstanding music education experiences to any interested student. For those families that need assistance, the Encore! Scholarship Fund provides tuition scholarships, sponsored lessons, instrument loans, repair and supplies, performance clothing, parent education workshops, free concert tickets and supports recruiting efforts in underserved communities.

What to Expect at Encore!

Encore! 2021 is our first in-person event in over a year, and we couldn’t be more excited! Providing a fun and safe experience for you, our students and families, and our staff is SDYS’ first priority.

When you arrive at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay, you will have the option of self-parking or using valet for $10. You will check in at the table outside the Regatta Pavilion, an 8,000-square-foot open-sided tent located on the bay. Fresh ocean air will be moving throughout the tent. Tables will be a minimum of six to eight feet apart. You may “customize” how many will be seated at your table (2-6). We are expecting approximately 100 attendees, which gives plenty of space to spread out. If you’ve attended Encore! in past years in Balboa Park, you’ll remember the side-by-side performance and moving through crowded areas. We’ve eliminated all of that this year to ensure a comfortable, socially distanced event.

After you check in, you will be escorted into the tent and take your seat at your assigned table where refreshments will be provided. The evening includes dinner, musical program, silent auction and bid-down for scholarship donations. 

The hotel is following all County guidelines, with hotel staff wearing masks and providing safe food and beverage service. All guests will be asked to wear masks when not eating or drinking. All performers will wear masks. Wind and brass players will use bell covers. All SDYS staff will wear masks and will have been fully vaccinated.

If you have questions, please contact Terry Williams, Individual Giving Manager at or 619-233-3232 x160. We hope you join us for Encore!
