Seattle, Washington

This April, Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra (SYSO) celebrates 70 years of high-caliber orchestral performance and education. SYSO has a tradition of educational excellence and innovation. Founded in 1942 it is one of the premiere youth orchestras in the nation. Made up of the finest young classical musicians in the region and led by Music Director Stephen Rogers Radcliffe, SYSO delivers performances of professional caliber with the unrivaled energy and passion of youthful artistry.

SYSO will be marking this anniversary with a gala concert on April 28. The program showcases the full breadth of the Youth Symphony "family" with all four of its orchestras performing - from musicians as young as 7 years old to high school and college level performers. In addition to the beautiful music, concert-goers will hear from several distinguished alumni and special guests recounting the impact of the organization on their musical education as well as their lives beyond SYSO.
