Join us for our virtual Spring Concert!
March 13, 2021 | 7:00pm PST
The MYS Spring concert will premiere on March 13 at 7pm PST on our YouTube Channel, and will feature world premiere works by composers from the Youth Orchestra Commissioning Initiative (YOCI). The collaborative project with Portland Youth Philharmonic and New Jersey Youth Symphony is designed to create remote performances of new works by women and composers of color, and connects young musicians with composers who will write short chamber music pieces that students can rehearse and perform from their homes.
