The PYSO Painted Violin Fundraiser is sponsored by the PYSO Parents Association. It not only raises funds for the PYSO 2020 tour to the Baltics and Scandinavia but also gives enterprising PYSO musicians a chance to raise funds that go directly to their tour costs. We use violins that are no longer playable and beyond repair that have been donated from local violin repair shops such as Resonance Violins.
Talented artists from the Pittsburgh area have donated their time to create a new visual piece of art. Two of the artists are directly connected to PYSO (a current musician as well as a PYSO Parent), other artists are up and coming young Pittsburgh freelance artists, established graphic artists and even a past Pittsburgh Steeler player who has successfully re-invented himself as a visual artist (not just in Pittsburgh, but internationally, too). You may make donations as low as $5 and high as $500 that will support the PYSO and our talented musicians. Scroll down to read how.
Donors, companies and businesses may show their support to an individual PYSO musician by being their Benefactor of Note. Their donation will entitle them to chances to win a one-of-a-kind violin painted by local Pittsburgh artists as well as advertising space in the PYSO May 9th Concert program.
