Tulsa Youth Symphony

The Sound of Tulsa’s Future

For more than a half century, the Tulsa Youth Symphony has been bringing together the best of the best talent from across Northeastern Oklahoma. Nurtured and trained by conductors of national caliber, these students learn to collaborate and produce music that will absolutely astound you. Close your eyes…you won’t believe you’re listening to children ages 10–18. TYS is truly one of the Tulsa community’s highest notes.

Last year was Tulsa Youth Symphony's 50th anniversary. To celebrate, we asked Dr. Joseph Rivers to compose a piece specifically for us. We debuted the piece, Buffalo Run, at our anniversary concert and it was a tremendous success. In fact, it was such a success that news of both the composition and our performance reached the ears of the organizers of the OK Mozart International Music Festival. They have asked the Symphony Orchestra to come to Bartlesville to open the festival on Saturday, June 6, 2015 with a performance of Buffalo Run! This will mark the first time TYS has been invited to participate in this event, which is quite an honor for our musicians. Taking our musicians on the road benefits our musicians and the communities where they perform, but this is an extra, and unexpected, expense for us; one that tuition alone won't cover. If you can help us achieve our goal of opening the OK Mozart International Music Festival by making a donation to our kickstarter campaign, we would greatly appreciate it!
