The Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra (ASYO) was recently selected to participate in Atlanta's "Power2Give" campaign, a fundraising effort supported by the Arts & Science Council and the City of Atlanta's Office of Cultural Affairs that connects donors to creative projects that inspire them.
The online campaign, which runs through June 3, 2013, has a financial goal of raising $2,500 to support scholarships that would provide ASYO student musicians with the opportunity to participate in intensive summer music training programs throughout the country. These scholarships will also help graduating ASYO high school seniors in the first year of their college-level music studies.
The ASYO Scholarship is available to the winners of an annual performance competition, which is judged by some of Atlanta's best music professionals - including prominent musicians and members of the music education community. Donors to the ASYO Scholarship Fund will be recognized in a program book for the Youth Orchestra's New Era Concert series. They will also receive a thank you letter signed by a member of the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra.
Power2Give is part of a larger national campaign that utilizes online giving to support nonprofit organizations via the Power2Give website.
