Metropolitan Youth Symphony


Metropolitan Youth Symphony’s mission is to develop, educate and promote young musicians. Founded in 1974 with 16 string students, MYS now serves the needs of over 500 young musicians annually. MYS offers 4 levels of orchestra and 3 levels of band, string and chamber groups, a flute choir and 2 jazz orchestras. MYS musicians perform at least 9 concerts a year and outreach performances in Oregon and SW Washington. Playing in an ensemble develops the skills of concentration, cooperation, discipline, and self confidence. Studies prove that students who participate in music programs have higher academic achievement, fewer disciplinary problems, are more likely to go to college and become leaders in their communities. Most importantly, they have fun, acquire a life-long love of music and form friendships that will last a lifetime.
