Thirty-five years.

Another milestone.

Every five years SHJO celebrates with an alumni and member reunion performance. At that event, it has been a tradition to show appreciation and gratitude to the Upper St. Clair School District for providing a home and supporting the vision of this “one-of-a-kind” youth orchestra. Throughout our 35 history we have given back with significant gifts to support the school's music department.

To aid in raising funds for the 35th Anniversary Gift we will be raffling “themed” baskets at the reception, which will follow the “Home for the Holidays” concert on Sunday, December 17, 2017.

Your help will be greatly appreciated to find items for the suggested themes. Click on the link below to indicate the basket for which you will seek donations from businesses and merchants. Be sure to remind them we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit. 100% of any cash donations received will be used to build the baskets.

We have been blessed to have a home in a caring place for 35 years. This has allowed us to keep SHJO a family-friendly, volunteer-based musical organization, serving the Greater Pittsburgh area at a reasonable cost to members.

Please help us with the worthy project.

Donations, cash or items, will be accepted until December 9th.
