Our Alumni

TYSA is proud to maintain a community of alumni who continue to inspire and grow, both personally and musically, through all walks of life.

Calling all TYSA alumni!

Join us for TYSA Alumni Day on Saturday, May 18, 2024!

Join the entire TYSA community in celebrating Alumni Day on Saturday, May 18! Reconnect with old friends and make new ones in this special day celebrating over 60 years of TYSA family.

If you’re not able to attend, we’d still love to stay connected! You can stay in the loop by submitting your information through our Alumni Form below.

Light refreshments will be provided, and attendees will have the opportunity to attend part of a Tacoma Youth Symphony rehearsal! Feel free to bring your instrument and play side-by-side with current students, or simply sit and listen. After rehearsal, stick around for a meet-and-greet with Dr. Cobbs! In addition, all alumni are invited to attend the TYS season finale concert in the Pantages Theater at 7:00 PM that evening.
