Philadelphia Youth Orchestra Annual Gala

Join us Friday March 10, 2017, 6:00 p.m., at the Union League of Philadelphia as the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra commemorates its 77th Annual Season. As one of the oldest and most respected youth orchestra organization’s in the country, we celebrate our rich history and eagerly look forward to future years of thrilling growth and opportunity for our ever-evolving organization.

This year marks a very special occasion for PYO, as we pay tribute to our own Maestro Louis Scaglione, who is celebrating his 20th Anniversary of unparalleled service to the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra organization. For the past two decades, Maestro Scaglione has grown PYO’s ensemble offerings to expand our student base, founded our community engagement program Tune Up Philly, and inspired thousands of young musicians to continue to pursue their own excellence by becoming members of top orchestras throughout the world and successfully assuming leadership roles in numerous professions. Please join us as we toast to Maestro Scaglione at this year’s gala in recognition of his outstanding work for our organization.

The evening’s festivities will commence with a cocktail reception in the Meade Room with an art show and sale by longtime partner and friend, Studio Incamminati, to benefit the PYO Scholarship and Financial Aid Fund. Following dinner in the Grant Ballroom, guests will be treated to performances by the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra, Bravo Brass, and Tune Up Philly, giving you the opportunity to witness the incredible impact of your generosity firsthand through the sounds of our talented students. We will also welcome special guest soloist and PYO alumna, Rachel Segal.

Through excellent music education and performance opportunities, PYO trains the leaders of tomorrow and inspires profound civic engagement. We eagerly await a remarkable celebration at this year’s gala with Maestro Scaglione, our students, their families, and the entire PYO board of trustees and staff.

With all best regards,

Joseph DiMauro, VMD, Chairman, Board of Trustees
