MYSP: Sounds of the season 2018

On Saturday, December 15th, 2018, the Memphis Youth Symphony Program (MYSP) hosted their annual “Sounds of the Season” concert.

by Brittany Cooper

Whereas most MSYP performances are free and open to the public, this holiday concert is a fundraiser and is ticketed. Students from all four ensembles have an opportunity to perform beloved holiday tunes for their friends and family members. Karla Philipp conducts the String Ensemble and String Sinfonia and Andrew Crust conducts the String Orchestra and Memphis Youth Symphony. The MYSP is grateful to its donors and patrons who help keep ensembles accessible to Memphis area students. Donations help to provide sheet music, hall rental, concert programs, work study scholarships, professional coaches, and more.

 

Founded in 1966 by the visionary Music Director of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra Vincent de Frank, the Memphis Youth Symphony Program has evolved and grown in tandem with the MSO over the years, achieving independent 501(c)(3) status a decade ago. De Frank himself conducted the MYSP for 14 years before passing on the baton in 1980. Since that time, a multitude of gifted conductors have put their unique signature on the program and inspired new generations of young musicians to embrace and participate in a wide spectrum of musical arts.

About

Musical leaders since 1966, The MYSP has four performing orchestras. All four groups hold open auditions for membership each spring for the following season.

The MYSP encourages a broad base of support. Roughly 200 students from 50 different schools (including home school) from across the Tri-State region participate every year.
