Our mission is to help young people to set goals, surpass them, and achieve excellence through the practice of classical music.
Changing Young Lives
The Golden Isles Youth Orchestra is governed by a board of local directors who raise the GIYO’s annual budget from individuals, family foundations, and organizations, all of whom believe that symphonic music should be an integral part of the lives of all children.
