American Youth Symphony (AYS), currently celebrating its 50th
Anniversary season, is a Los Angeles-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization
dedicated to sharing exceptional, innovative concerts based on our landmark
training of extraordinary musicians ages 15-27 that inspires the future of this
timeless art form. Founded in 1964 by
Mehli Mehta, the AYS orchestra provides paid fellowships to approximately 100
musicians who are selected through a highly competitive audition process and
represent talent from all over the world. To-date AYS has prepared over 2,500
musicians for successful careers in music with many of our alumni having joined
the finest orchestras in the nation. Our
regular season concerts are offered at no charge to the community out of a
longstanding commitment to eliminating barriers to experiencing the
joy, beauty, and exuberance of remarkable orchestral concerts. In collaboration
with world-class artists like Yefim Bronfman, Sarah Chang, Midori, Johannes
Moser, John Williams, and Danny Elfman, AYS performs an annual series of five
to six outstanding concerts at UCLA’s Royce Hall. AYS also participates in
community outreach initiatives designed to make orchestral music accessible to
all. For more information, please visit http://www.aysymphony.org.
