Welcome to my MYS Fundraising Page!

Support me in this year's Play-a-thon!

Hello, and welcome to my MYS Play-a-thon fundraising page! Please help me reach my goal by December 8th! You are welcome to join me and MYS for our free concert to the community on December 15th, at Rosedale Shopping Center! 

Artistic costs that directly affect my experience in MYS exceed $100,000 each year. This amount covers our rehearsal space and concert venues, music, instruments sectional coaches, and most importantly student scholarships, creating excellent orchestral education possible for all! I hope you consider supporting me and MYS in this year’s Play-a-thon!

My Story

Hello, my name is Claire Schoonmaker and I play in the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Minnesota Youth Symphonies (MYS). I have played flute for 5 years. My favorite part of MYS rehearsals is when we all tune together and try to get our best sounds. MYS is important to me because it is one of the only places that I get to play alongside other dedicated muscians who love to play their instrument. 

Please join us for our festive performance on December 15th at Rosedale Mall, from 12:00-3:45pm! 

I appreciate your help to help me reach my goal!
