AVILA CHILDREN AND YOUTH ORCHESTRA (ACYO) is a non-profit organization dedicated to developing the musical talent and nurturing the personal growth of young people through the rehearsal and performance of traditional and contemporary orchestral masterworks.
We are located in the city of Weston in the Bonaventure Town Center Shoppes, since August 2006 under the economical and moral support of AVILA DEVELOPMENT CENTER. This is a multisensory stimulation center that considers music as one of their primary tools to help children achieve an integral development.
ACYO is committed to developing artistic excellence, providing performance opportunities for talented young musicians, fostering a life-long love of music, encouraging leadership and cooperation, cultivating the appreciation of music and the arts in the community, and collaborating with other arts and youth organizations.
At the same time, we are engaged in promoting a safe and rewarding environment, instilling positive values and principles in each of our members, nourishing a sense of responsibility and accountability, and the development of positive decision-making skills.
Until now the Orchestra had been financed by the parents and Avila Development Center but due to the economic situation, and the increasing costs of the rent and services, Avila could not renew the contract of the facility were the Orchestra had their classes and rehearsals.
For this reasons, we humbly request your partnership in helping us to get a place in any of the schools in the city of Weston (if possible), in order of keep the Orchestra functioning.
Thank you for your time and thoughtful consideration in this matter. We await your response and appreciate your help.
