Sponsorship Opportunities

2016-17 Season

Each year, the Youth Orchestra of Bucks County (YOBC) connects with more than 275 YOBC students and their families, 1,500 YOBC concert and event participants, and music teachers and students from all 13 school districts in Bucks County. For our 25th Anniversary this year, visibility will include 77,000 local households receiving the Bucks County Courier Times and the Intelligencer newspapers. We are offering annual sponsorship opportunities that will include maximum visibility through recognition at our concerts, on our website, in our regular e-newsletters, on our promotional items, at our community events, and in a special display ad in the aforementioned newspapers celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the founding of YOBC.
Proceeds will help YOBC execute our mission of creating opportunities for young musicians to achieve artistic excellence through enriching classical music experiences, including our Students In Concert (SIC) Program which provides educational opportunities in several school districts whose music programs have been cut back or eliminated altogether.
