Student tuition only accounts for a portion of our overall expenses, and we rely on the generous contributions of individuals and funders to fund the difference. Administration of the Youth Chamber Connection is provided by Three Rivers Young Peoples Orchestras, with significant administrative and financial support also coming from our collaborators at the PIttsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra and City Music Center of Duquesne University.
Support for Youth Chamber Connection comes from:
- The McCreery Fund of the Buhl Foundation (through support to TRYPO)
- The Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency (through support to TRYPO and PYSO)
- The Allegheny Regional Asset District (through support to TRYPO and PYSO)
- BNY Mellon Foundation of Southwestern Pennsylvania (through scholarship support to TRYPO)
- The Paul J. & Charlotta Ross Young Musicians Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation (through scholarship support to TRYPO)
- The Jack Buncher Foundation (through scholarship support to TRYPO)
