Together, We Create One Sound
For sixty years, the Tacoma Youth Symphony Association has been nationally recognized and respected for its exemplary musical education and artistic excellence. By using classical music as a common language, we bring diverse communities together and give youth skills they can take into any profession, anywhere in life. Though rooted in the tradition of classical music, we also create an environment that’s inclusive, playful, and daring!
