The Albany Youth Orchestra relies on student fees and generous donations from the public to continue its service. It is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization so donations are tax-deductible.
We have a large rental fleet. Donating an instrument helps keep rental costs low. We accept violins, violas, cellos, basses, their bows and accessories, and music stands.
We are always looking for people who are excited about music and youth orchestra. Events include concerts and fundraising projects. Help out and get cool swag like t-shirts and yummy food!
Return your cans and bottles in our blue fundraiser bags and the proceeds go directly to us! Bags can be picked up at Browsers' Bookstore in Albany and the Nancy Rohn Violin Shop in Corvallis. You can also transfer money directly from your BottleDrop account to ours using this button.

Albany schools have used classroom and fine arts enrichment grants from the APSF to support strings programs in their schools. Grant money has purchased school instruments that are then available to students free of charge. We are also very excited to be able to offer tuition assistance through the APSF Fine Arts Enrichment Grant school program so that our programs are affordable for all students at South Shore Elementary.
Show the students that you support them in their cultural education. Check our calendar for upcoming events and performances.
