YPSCA is the Young People’s Symphony Concert Association. They were created in 1911 to support the Minnesota Orchestra’s Young People’s Concerts, one the nation’s oldest series of YPCs. We present Pages of Music preview programs to schools in Robbinsdale, Richfield, and Columbia Heights, preparing them for their school trips to Minnesota Orchestra Young People’s Concerts. In addition to supporting our preview programs, YPSCA provides volunteer ushers for the concerts and assists schools with transportation and ticket expenses to attend these concerts. In addition, their School Music Auditions allow students to compete for the chance to perform as soloists with the Minnesota Orchestra at a future YPC.
We often perform for YPSCA members at their fall membership party, with a preview of what we’ll present to students in the schools. Want to get involved with introducing the marvelous world of classical music to young people? Join and support YPSCA!
