Virtual Gala
November 3, 2021, 6:00pm

The Hyde Park Youth Symphony is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that brings together diverse students from the South Side of Chicago and beyond to provide a high-quality orchestral performance and musical education experience.  Sponsorships are tax deductible.  We keep tuition to a minimum, recognizing that many families stretch to provide arts opportunities for their children, and we offer scholarships for students who are unable to cover the cost of tuition.
