In 2008, Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras received a Wallace Foundation Excellence Award to bring free string instrument lessons to schools in Southwest Seattle. These schools have had very little access to arts education.
SYSO provides three times the amount of instrumental music lessons than these students would normally receive. Enrollment in orchestra has tripled at the middle school level because of this program.
