Toledo International Youth Orchestra is going to Cuba! TIYO is an orchestra made up of talented and passionate youth musicians from school districts across northwest Ohio. These volunteer student members give of their time and talent performing free, public concerts throughout our community. Recent performances have included standing ovations from inmates at a correctional facility, appreciative praise from guests at a free-meal kitchen, resounding applause by participants in a shelter's holiday worship celebration, and expressions of gratitude from locals picking apples for a food pantry. Each year TIYO works to connect our students with musicians from across the globe and to expose our talented young performers to cultures from around the world. Now we're headed to Cuba!! Help support TIYO as we take this historic step by becoming the first youth orchestra to perform in Cuba since the recent expansion of travel categories by the state department. We are incredibly excited to be given this opportunity to "bridge cultures through music"! Help us turn this dream into a reality!!
