Allegro Association
MYSO is excited to highlight the new Allegro Association , a special affiliate group of MYSO and Music For Youth alumni. Through the Association, we engage alumni who are helping to share the impact of MYSO with the next generation of young musicians.

Alumni who make a gift of any size are honored as members and receive special benefits and exclusive opportunities. We are thrilled that we now have 50 members. We ask you to please join us in this new effort to help move MYSO forward.
