Dear music lover,

Grand Rapids Youth Symphony & Classical Orchestra organization brings some of West Michigan’s most exceptional and hardworking young musicians together to experience the best in orchestral music. Together we tackle excellent, challenging music from around the world. We jump in with both feet and in a few short months present exciting, vibrant performances. Some of our alumni are now playing in professional orchestras, and all of our players leave with an abiding love of great orchestral music.

Students pay tuition for this exceptional experience, but tuition alone doesn’t cover our costs. We need supporters to help make our programs possible each year through financial donations or by purchasing advertising.

We covet your support!

John Varineau, conductor
