Statement of Culture
MYS is a welcoming community of students, families, conductors, coaches, teachers, supporters and volunteers. On stage and off, MYS STUDENTS SUPPORT EACH OTHER AND INSPIRE ONE ANOTHER. We empower our students to achieve EXCELLENCE in a balanced and meaningful way, by supporting their musical development and celebrating their varied interests and passions.
MYS is a safe space for all students. MYS does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, creed, religion, color, national origin, age, veteran or military status, sexual orientation including gender expression or identity, or the presence of any mental or physical disability in its employment, programs and/or activities.
2020-2021 Season Update
Due to ongoing safety concerns related to COVID-19, we have decided that the remainder of our 2020-21 season will be online. This format has been a wonderful way to keep music in our student’s lives while giving them time with Oregon Symphony musicians, international guest artists, students from other youth orchestras, and new MYS friends. If it is permitted and safe to meet in-person for Spring Term, we will consider that possibility, but we anticipate that we will remain online for the year. Please visit our 2020-21 Season Update page for more information.
