Record Enrollment Reached at ISO
329 student musicians now perform with one of ISO’s nine ensembles! This is a record number in our 41-year history. The most growth has been in the entry-level orchestras. In fact, there are so many students in these groups, that they can no longer fit together on the stage at Symphony Space. Instead, Queens East and Trinity Florentine Orchestras will perform together and Turtle Bay and Morningside Orchestras will pair up for the May performance.
Not surprisingly, the other record we just set is in the amount of financial aid awarded: $108,000 this season alone. Please consider making a donation. It’s only by everyone pulling together that we are able to include every child who wants to make music with us!
