CSYO Fundraiser

HELP THE CSYO RAISE FUNDS FOR CONTRABASSOON

 

Thank you for helping

us reach our goal!

 

Former CSO Principal Bassoonist, Bob Cochran, and his wife Susan, both currently board members of the CSO, will generously match up to $5,000 raised for this initiative!

Great instruments are essential to great music. The Columbus Symphony Youth Orchestra is fortunate to be able to offer the use of dozens of instruments to our students to expand and enhance their learning experience. Our ability to provide a diverse collection of instruments to these musicians is essential to their artistic development during their time with the CSYO. 

We have an exciting and time-sensitive opportunity to obtain a used contrabassoon, most recently owned by our very own CSO bassoonist, Cynthia Cioffari, and we need your help to make it possible!

A contrabassoon provides some of the lowest notes of the orchestra and is found in many of our symphonic repertoires. Unfortunately, due to its large size and price tag (a new contrabassoon can range from $30,000-$60,000), students rarely have the opportunity to study this stunning resonate woodwind outside of playing with an orchestra like the CSYO.

We have set a goal to raise $16,000* by February 29 in order to cover the cost to purchase this contrabassoon for the CSYO. Please consider a gift of any size to support our campaign and continue our ability to provide opportunities for students to explore their musical gifts and talents.
