Dr. Kathleen Pistone Carucci Legacy Fund
In 1962, on their honeymoon in Italy, Conductor / Composer Pasquale A. Pistone and his bride conceived their dreams of establishing the Fine Arts Orchestral Society (FAOS) to fundraise and support the the yet to be established
Yonkers Philharmonic Orchestra (YPO) which would provide live, orchestral concerts, free-of-charge, to Yonkers residents. Over the years, with the support of friends, neighbors and generous grants, FAOS/YPO has continued to thrive.
Now in this our 57th year, in honor and recognition of the dedication and tireless efforts of our co-founder, the Board of Directors of the Fine Arts Orchestral Society has established, the: Dr. Katherine Pistone Carucci Legacy Fund
Won’t you help us keep the music playing for years to come?
All contributions to the fund will be used to support on-going FAOS / YPO expenses.
FAOS is the 100% volunteer led and run fundraising and operational support arm of the 60-member YPO.
To contribute, please make your check payable to the

ArtsWestchester Community Service Award
Established in 1965 as the Council for the Arts in Westchester, we are New York State’s largest private, not-for-profit service organization, working to ensure the availability and accessibility of the arts for all of the county’s residents. In 1975, we were named by Westchester County government as the County’s designated arts council and we became one of several united arts funds in the country, providing grants and technical support to cultural organizations and artist residencies in the community.
ArtsWestchester gave the Yonkers Philharmonic Orchestra an award for Community Service in 2012.
