Honoring the visionary leadership of Clyde and Helen Wu, we are celebrating fifty years of music training programs at the DSO with a special CYE50 campaign to ensure that every student in the region can lead a musical life. Through the generosity of DSO donors, we can offer this training regardless of a family’s financial resources.

The DSO and Wu Family Academy would like to thank Aaron & Carolynn Frankel, Mary Ann & Rob Gorlin, Bernard & Eleanor Robertson, Martie & Bob Sachs, Nancy Schlichting & Pamela Theisen, and David & Bernadine Wu for their leadership support of the CYE50 Campaign, and all the CYE50 Gold Club members who generously contributed.
