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, and his wife, Dorothy Straub-Genualdi (1941-2015). Icons in the field of music education, Bob and Dorothy served the youth orchestras for more than 30 years. As performers, teachers, composers, and arrangers, Bob and Dorothy 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. Give to GBYO and support the organization Bob and Dorothy loved.
