MYS is one of the nation’s premier youth orchestra education programs dedicated to conservatory-level orchestra training for students.

For over 45 years, the Minnesota Youth Symphonies (MYS) has been changing lives through music!  

MYS has provided a comprehensive education to Twin Cities students that includes weekly orchestra rehearsals, music education classes, appearances by guest artists, and season concerts held at Orchestra Hall. MYS relies on your crucial support to continue this rich history of rigorous training while looking ahead to a robust future. Tuition revenue from our students covers only part of the cost of our high-quality instruction. Contributions allow MYS to maintain its signature quality and excellence in its ambitious repertoire and professional approach to instruction.

As one of our parents says, “There’s nothing like MYS artistically. The entire program pushes them and allows them to take musical risks they wouldn’t be otherwise able to do. And when you push yourself to achieve those goals, it’s very fulfilling.”
