In these free community concerts, the Tacoma Youth Symphony provides thousands of fourth graders with their first symphony orchestra experience. These young musicians-in-the-making explore the different instrument families of the orchestra through music from their favorite movies and Prokofiev’s delightful storytelling work Peter and the Wolf.
String Orchestra Festival
Each March, the Tacoma Youth Symphony Association sponsors an orchestra festival for middle school and junior high school orchestras.
School Coaching Sessions
As a free offering to our community, TYSA’s conductors and staff schedule visits year-round to engage with teachers and students in many ways – from conductor clinics to side-by-side teaching to double bass, horn, and saxophone coachings. Schedule a visit today!
School tours are offered in two unique settings within the schools: a whirlwind tour of in-school performances presented by one of our high school groups, and a side-by-side concert experience for middle school students.
