2014 CYSO China Tour!

Hi! I am embarking upon an extraordinary educational experience next summer, and I hope you will be a part of my journey. As you know, I have been with the Chicago Youth Symphony Orchestras for the past two years and this year, was honored with becoming a member of their highly regarded Symphony Orchestra -- the top ensemble of its kind in the country. I have worked so hard to get here and am so excited to now be living this dream.

From June 12 - 22, 2014, I will be touring China with the CYSO, performing in world renowned music venues in Beijing, Xi'an, Hangzhou and Shanghai. I am raising money so that I can participate in this important artistic and educational endeavor, and an opportunity of a lifetime.

I am currently asking for contributions to support my tour experience and I truly hope that you will be one of my sponsors. Each member of Symphony Orchestra is raising $5,000 to support their costs of the tour. These include all the concert expenses, international/local transportation, lodging and meals.

Your gift will allow me to to be a part of this once-in-a-lifetime endeavor and a chance to perform wonderful music in some of the world's greatest concert halls. Your generosity will not only help me to have this amazing educational and cultural experience, it will also showcase your commitment to your community and the performing arts.

Thank you with all my heart,
