My name is Shannon Houston and I am the artistic director of the New Apollo Youth Symphony Orchestra. I created this orchestra to give underprivileged and underrepresented students a place to play music with other students like them, but still in the environment of a youth symphony. The biggest goal of this orchestra is to provide an outlet for these students at as low a cost as possible, if not completely free. This organization is designed so that we can reach as many students as we possibly can thorughout the Bay Area.
Our goal of $10,000 is set to not only cover all operating costs for the orchestra through its first season, but also provide many scholarships for students to receive private lessons on their instruments. If we are able to reach this goal, many students who would have never had the opportunity of playing in a youth symphony, or getting private lessons, will be given both of these opportunites.
Please consider donating, and follow our journey via our website newapollomusic.org, or our Facebook or Instragram pages, both under the name New Apollo Youth Symphony Orchestra. Thank you for your support, together we can make a difference for our youth.
