Thank you to everyone who made the 2019 CYSO Gala: Chicago Soul a resounding success!

We are grateful to our event chairs, sponsors, host committee members, parents, and donors who showed such commitment to CYSO’s mission. A big thank you as well to the volunteers who helped make the night possible and, of course, our inspiring student performers! It’s so moving to know how deeply our supporters care about CYSO’s young musicians. Thanks to you, the 2019 CYSO Gala raised over $415,000 to support our music education, financial assistance, and community engagement programs!
