Why support the London Youth Symphony?
We depend on our donors, audience members, and volunteers to keep the music playing!
Your donation and participation show you care about youth, education, and the arts scene in London and the surrounding area.
What can we achieve together?
Help others experience the joy and beauty of classical music!
The LYS contributes to London's music and performing arts scene, adding to London's vibrant community.
Our programs allow youth to develop their confidence, creativity, and collaboration skills while improving all aspects of their musicianship.
Your support helps the orchestra grow, innovate, and venture into new areas of music!
Your donations help us give the opportunity to lower-income youth to participate through bursaries.

Support a Piece
Is there a piece you've been dying to see played live by an orchestra?
Suggest us your piece and check out the list of pieces we are hoping to purchase and play in the future!
Certain scores of orchestral works must be purchased, with costs going from $50+. Consider donating financially to help us purchase the score or copyrights for performance.
Don't forget to come to the concert too!
What is your favourite musical instrument? Do you have fond memories of playing an instrument growing up?
Consider "adopting a chair" to honor the chair of an instrument you love!
Your name will be noted next to the chair you are supporting on all concert programs of the season. Your generous donation will benefit the growth of the London Youth Symphony and support upcoming activities and events of the orchestra.
