About Us

Our 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization was founded upon the ideal that all children regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, or gender deserve the opportunity to participate in an affordable comprehensive orchestral training program within their community. A participant will never be turned away for lack of an instrument or inability to pay.


Our Mission

WFCYO’s mission is to provide expert orchestral instruction and instrumental access to Pre-K through 12th grade youth, especially in underserved and rural communities.

Our Vision

To provide instruments & instruction to 300 students in Wake, Franklin, & Vance Counties.
