Peninsula Youth Orchestra
Scholarships for Music
When Peninsula students with a talent for music and a love of orchestra could not feed their passion within the school arena, a few of their intrepid parents asked Altrusa to help them start a teaching orchestra that would fill the need. Since 1999, hundreds of young musicians, some with help from Altrusa Foundation-funded scholarships, have learned to play stringed instruments in PYO. Today, with nearly 100 students learning and playing at four orchestra levels, and some of their graduates in highly acclaimed music schools country-wide, Peninsula Youth Orchestra still looks to Altrusa Foundation for help with their scholarship and activities dollars. Altrusa Foundation is glad to help.
