Orchestrate Our Future - The Campaign for the Greater Bridgeport Youth Orchestras


GBYO is accepting donations in memory of Robert Genualdi (1930-2015), Honorary Music Director. An icon in the field of music education, Bob served the youth orchestras for more than 30 years. As a bassist, teacher, composer and arranger, Bob, along with his wife, Dorothy Straub-Genualdi, championed the cause of music in the public schools and worked tirelessly to ensure that young musicians had opportunities to hone their skills and perform at the highest level, both individually and collectively.

Upcoming Events:


Featuring the GBYO Principal Orchestra!
The Klein will celebrate its 75th Anniversary with an unprecedented concert, hosted by Paul Shaffer, featuring resident performing arts companies that regularly perform at this historic landmark, including GBYO. The Celebration Concert will proudly represent the best of the memorable history of the musical, dance and civic events that have graced the stage during the past 75 years! We are extremely grateful to our participating partners who readily agreed to perform in this exciting event. The finale will include all organizations coming together to perform a spectacular tribute to Bridgeport.
