Tacoma Youth Symphony

The 2012-2013 Season of the the Tacoma Youth Symphony Asscoiation is starting this month with auditions August 6-14th. Established in 1963, the Association is one of the premier youth symphony organizations in the country. 400-500 students are offered a continuum of seven orchestras, chamber music, music thyeory and a two week summer music festival.

From their website, tysamusic.org: "The Tacoma Youth Symphony Association is pleased to be celebrating its 50th season. The past five decades have witnessed the evolution of an exemplary music education organization recognized by youth symphony and professional orchestras nationwide for its artistic and business excellence. The nurturing familial atmosphere pervades the entire association from management to the students themselves. This close knit relationship has provided for the continuation of much needed artistic support. Major conservatories and universities such as Curtis, Juilliard, the Cleveland Institute, and the San Francisco Conservatory recruit TYSA members because they respect the fact that these potential students have been through our program."
