help us make amazing music

Like most youth orchestra programs, tuition and ticket sales only cover 50% of our total costs. We rely on financial contributions to support our work with students. Your gift is 100% tax deductible, and creates opportunities for the next generation of young musicians.

Interested or prospective students can register themselves to participate in the orchestra they are interested in auditioning for. Guests will receive information about MYS as well as fun treats, and will also get the opportunity to observe and participate in rehearsal.
