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.
