Champions

Francesca_1

“The very first rehearsal when I walked in
and we played Mahler 1. I could
feel the rumbling from the basses, the
crack of the brass, the clarity
of all the strings, 
and the beauty
of the woodwinds. I will never
forget that day.
It was the best day of my life!”

– Luigi Polcari, cello, current AYS musician


Join the Champions today!
Invest in the future.

Create a gift of lasting support and cultural significance by naming a chair in the American Youth Symphony. As a Champion, you can name a chair in your or another’s honor for one season, 10 years, 25 years, or in perpetuity!

By becoming a Champion you will join a select group of philanthropists who share your passion and commitment to the mission of AYS. The naming of a chair for more than one season has a long-term impact on AYS and is the perfect opportunity to leave your mark in an enduring and meaningful way.

As a Champion we will support you in building a relationship with the musician filling the chair each year. This is a fantastic opportunity for our musicians to foster a relationship with our philanthropic and visionary supporters — a professional skill they all need — and for our Champions to foster one-on-one relationships with the passionate and enthusiastic, concert artists of tomorrow.

Our champions are incredibly vital to AYS achieving our artistic excellence!
