“The Colorado Youth Symphony Orchestra is a shining example of bringing access to inner-city youth, [enabling them] to experience the challenges and rewards of learning and performing orchestral music. The Colorado Youth Symphony Orchestra goes out of its way to make such an experience possible for hundreds of youth who would not find or be able to afford this experience on their own. The Denver SCFD Cultural Council has been a strong supporter of CYSO for many years.”
“The CYSO has been a respected, long-standing grantee of The Denver Foundation. Among many venerable qualities, CYSO has a 27-year history of providing youth symphony orchestra programs for aspiring young musicians in the Denver Community.
“CYSO is a leader in music education outreach programs in schools serving low-income students. The outreach program is a model program that brings instruments and teachers to the students.”
