BYSO’s Garden Party Kicks-Off Monday, April 5

In just one week, BYSO will begin to release new staff and student performances on YouTube every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday through May 15 in celebration of BYSO’s Growing Musicians Virtual Garden Party. As tradition, this fundraiser is free for all to enjoy.

This year, we invite family members, friends, and friends of friends to RSVP using our online form. Each person that RSVP’s will be entered into a drawing – similar to a door prize – for a chance to win one of two prizes: a $100 Crossroads Mall gift card or a Beecher’s Cheese Wheel valued at $100.

Students are encouraged to invite their friends and family to RSVP. All students that are mentioned in the RSVP form will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win a 3D printer!

This Garden Party supports BYSO’s programs and student scholarships. Find out how you can help the Garden Party succeed.
