Support Our Youth Outreach Program!

Austin Civic Orchestra

I have been playing bassoon with the ACO since 1998! To say that this group has become a kind of second family for me would be an understatement! I look forward to Tuesday nights and making music with wonderful people every single week! I have also served as the treasurer for the orchestra for almost all of the years that I've been with the ACO.

Our goal this year is to raise money to help sustain and expand our youth outreach program, which has always been very important to the ACO. Here are some examples of how your donations can help:

- Provide free admission to patrons 18 years old and younger. A gift of $100 covers the cost of admission for 10 youth.

- Offer the Paint to Music program for K-12 students in which they explore classic music through art. A gift of $250 pays for finalist awards and an art show reception.
- Give five young, local musicians the opportunity to grow in artistry during the Amster Chamber Music Program. A gift of $500 covers the cost of music coaches to work with the students.
- Host a free children's concert that includes an engaging, kid-friendly music selection and an interactive instrument zoo. A gift of $600 defrays the cost of music purchase/rental.

Please consider making a donation to help us continue to produce wonderful musical experiences for all the people of Austin! Thank you so much!!

Thank you for supporting my fundraising campaign, Melissa Vauk
