S.D. Youth Symphony wins leadership award from USD

The San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory was recently honored by the University of San Diego with the Kaleidoscope Award for Exceptional Governance.

The award is given by USD’s School of Leadership and Education Science’s Institute for Nonprofit Education and Research.

“The San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory is an outstanding organization and an asset to the San Diego community,” said Liz Shear, director of USD’s Nonprofit Governance Symposium, whose committee of judges selected the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory for the fifth annual award. “Its board brings precision and excellence to bear in its governance processes and practices.”

The San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory strives for excellence in the musical and personal development of their students through “rigorous and inspiring musical training experiences.”

“Our board of trustees is greatly honored to receive the Kaleidoscope Award this year,” said SDYS Board Chair and University of California, San Diego professor Jim Whitesell.

“Establishing good governance as a priority has been instrumental in pushing forward our vision to make music education accessible and affordable for all children.”

By interacting with musical communities to broaden students’ horizons, embracing the diversity of students and enriching the community through programs and collaborations that increase access to and appreciation of classical music, SDYS seeks to foster a diverse, music rich environment for their students, and to instill a lifetime love of music.
