Hi! This is Xenia & I am now in 11th grade at Carlisle High School. I am in my 8th year of playing the flute & this is my 4th season with the Harrisburg Symphony Youth Orchestra (HSYO).
HSYO has afforded me the opportunity to grow as a musician with the most talented high schoolers in the Central Pennsylvania area. HSYO is easily my favorite music ensemble with which I play. I enjoy the challenging repertoire & the camaraderie of my colleagues. Every single week I look forward to Monday night rehearsals. Our conductor and sectional coaches are outstanding musicians who help us reach our maximum potential. I have formed relationships that will last a lifetime through my HSYO musicial experience.
Please help me reach my goal this year so that HSYO can continue to offer young talented musicians an opportunity to come together & create beautiful music. We need to raise money to pay for all the expenses our youth orchestra has. This includes the salaries for our youth symphony conductors and administrator, fees for our professional musician coachings, and the cost of purchasing and renting music, among other expenses.
Our goal as a youth symphony is to raise $18,000. Our woodwind section has been asked to raise $2,440 towards that goal. Please help us shine as a light in the Harrisburg area.
