The creation of the BYSO Youth Center for Music is made possible by our strong community of supporters–those who believe in the potential of our children and the power of exceptional music education. We are deeply grateful for your support and we are proud to recognize all who helped make our new home a reality.


* Through leadership giving, our Friends of the Future are cornerstones in the creation of the BYSO Youth Center for Music. We thank them for their unwavering commitment to Boston’s youth as we open a home where music-making at the highest level is accessible for generations to come – thank you.
