MYS’s 2019-2020 concert season consists of four Downtown Series performances at the Portland5’s Center for the Performing Arts and our Community Concerts at schools and community venues.  Tickets for MYS Concerts are available for purchase below. Seating maps are for informational purposes. In some cases you will be given seats near your original selection. In that event, we will contact you and inform you of the change.

The Symphony Orchestra performance of ‘Dance Party: Then and Now’ originally scheduled at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on Sunday, May 24, 2020 is moving to the Newmark Theatre on Tuesday, June 23, 2020.  You will be issued new tickets for Newmark Theatre with comparable seat locations to your Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall tickets.

This groove infused, high energy program features dance music from the past 150 years, from countries including Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic, Armenia, Mexico, Brazil, and the US. Celebrating young leaders in music, The Authentic Voice collaboration between MYS and the Fear No Music showcases a symphonic World Premiere by 16-year-old Rohan Srinivasan, a jazz drummer and former cellist. A winner of the 2020 MYS Concerto Competition will take a solo turn with the orchestra.
