Yale Symphony Orchestra
2020 Peru Tour
May 19-May 31
This year will take the Yale Symphony Orchestra to new heights - or at least new altitudes - as it makes its second tour to South America, visiting Lima, Cusco and Arequipa, Peru from May 19-May 31, 2020.
In addition to outstanding performances at some of the best concert halls in each city, the Yale Symphony will be giving workshops and Side-by-Side performances with young local musicians.
Our three concerts in Peru will feature new American music, works featuring two of our dedicated senior musicians, arrangements of Peruvian music, and a standard of the classical repertoire.

Touring with a symphony orchestra is no small feat. The total cost of this tour will be more than $325,000. We have successfully raised most of that money, but we still have $30,000 to raise. Your generous donation, of any amount, will help us to achieve this goal and enable these students to participate in this exciting tour.
Every donation, in addition to being tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law, will be recognized on the YSO website and in the tour brochure. We will hold a post-tour private reception in the Fall of 2020 for donors of the Tour where we’ll screen a short film about the trip to Peru.
Alumni will also receive personal and class credit for their next reunion.
