Support from our individual donors, corporations, and foundations during our 2018-19 season impacted the lives of so many students and families within the Boston community. At Josiah Quincy Orchestra Program, no child or family is ever turned away because of financial limitations. 56% of all program costs per child are subsidized by the organization and 46% of our students receive financial assistance. This support truly helped to create an unforgettable year for all of us at the Josiah Quincy Orchestra Program. Thank you for continuing to provide opportunities for our young people to experience the joy and power of music!
