The 56-year old Fine Arts Orchestral Society of Yonkers (FAOS) is a registered 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization. The organization is the fundraising arm of the 65-member Yonkers Philharmonic Orchestra. We remain dedicated to the following goals: Enhancing the quality of life and cultural diversity of our audience and musicians, by providing free, live, symphonic concerts on Sunday afternoons to residents of Yonkers and neighboring communities. Providing senior citizens and families with school-age children with free classical and contemporary concerts that otherwise would be inaccessible to them. Encouraging renowned musicians to serve as role models for younger musicians. Showcasing talented high-school soloists from all of Westchester County. Promoting music education and appreciation to our audiences during the concerts and in-school programs.
