Welcome to the MYS experience!

For over thirty years, Co-Artistic Directors Claudette and Manny Laureano (pictured below) have led one of the nation's premiere youth orchestra programs. Through their leadership and vision they have developed a comprehensive orchestral training program comprised of three full orchestras and one string orchestra that presents a well-rounded music education that includes:

  • Sectionals and full rehearsals

  • Music education classes

  • Orchestra retreats

  • Three major concerts per season

MYS gives students the tools to recognize and develop their musicial gifts. We hope your life as an MYS musician, whether you become a professional or a highly educated audience member will be memorable and serve you well in your life endeavors.
