The Glendale Youth Orchestra is grateful to these supporting families who have chosen to establish memorials in memory of their loved ones who were great supporters of GYO. Establishing such a memorial greatly helps GYO and is a meaningful way of honoring a person whose memory is so dear. The GYO memorial fund currently represents donations in loving memory of:

Lloyd Klein, the father of former GYO music director Christopher Fazzi, and a long-time generous supporter of the orchestra.

Marge Parks, a founding member of the GYO board and a tireless worker and advocate for the orchestra.

Robert Sullivan, the grandfather of GYO's violinist Mara Kelly and an enthusiastic supporter of the orchestra for many years.

Susan Sullivan Kelly, mother of GYO violinist and current board member Mara Kelly and wife of current board member Tim Kelly. Sue served on the board for many years as chairman of the silent auction and many other fundraisers.

Melvin Keimach, the much loved and gentle father of GYO Conductor Brad Keimach and husband of Phyllis Keimach, Brad's mother. Mr. and Mrs. Keimach came to every GYO concert over many years and sat in the left-front section of the orchestra to proudly watch their son work his magic with the young musicians of the GYO.

Thank you for your collaboration!

The Glendale Youth Orchestra, a non-profit public benefit organization, prides itself on the tradition of keeping its program accessible to all students, regardless of their families' financial capabilities. Consequently, participant fees often cover only a third of GYO's operating expenses. Our very success depends upon a broad and reliable base of generous supporters.

GYO's Board of Directors and staff participate fully in all of our fundraising efforts. Please join us in supporting excellence in classical musical performance and investment in our youth by making a tax-deductible gift to the Glendale Youth Orchestra.
