The Westside Community & Youth Orchestra has been awarded a series of grants from the Richard B. Siegel Foundation via the Hillsboro Community Foundation.  These grants provide exposure, education and opportunities to youth in the greater Hillsboro community.  WCYO was selected because of the valuable artistic and cultural opportunities that it provides. 

Through our grant, we are offering grants of up to $350 to subsidize lessons. 


All expenses must be approved in advance and are only for your primary instrument played with our orchestra. Only members who participated in at least the last two of our concerts are eligible. 

Orchestra members who have not reached their 21st birthday eligible to apply. All students receiving grant support are encouraged to continue their participation in our orchestra.

 Lessons and instructor must be approved by the WCYO Board in advance.
