56 hard working students are hoping that community donors will help them achieve a dream of performing in Cuba. Toledo’s International Youth Orchestra (TIYO) from 11 Northwest Ohio school districts, in the past, TIYO has traveled to Austria, South Korea, and Tanzania, and other locations. During past trips, TIYO rented instruments once they arrived at their final destination, but the rental option is not available in Cuba. Traveling with fragile and expensive instruments costs more and will take $150,000 to send these students and their instruments to Cuba. 

Samoria Russell, an 8th grade student at the Toledo School for the Arts, and a French horn player for TIYO, is excited to be a part of the group and the doors this experience will open for her in the future.
