Their Mission Statement

Provides opportunity for youth in grades 6-8 to play in a full symphonic orchestra setting

Summary of Impact

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit AYS furthers musical opportunities for youth in the greater Alton area by providing young musicians in grades 6-8 an opportunity to play in a full symphony orchestra setting. In addition, AYS hosts a junior youth symphony for grades 4-6. These string students rehearse in the second semester and perform in the spring concert. Through the leadership of professional music directors and conductors, students are challenged to perform a diverse and challenging mixture of orchestral pieces. Throughout the concert season, other professional musicians and music educators are recruited to conduct sectional coaching sessions to enhance the performance capabilities of the youth participants.   AYS membership is open to young musicians without regard to race, gender, education or disability. AYS members include many children who attend schools that do not offer music programs or whose music programs do not include a string or symphony orchestra curriculum. Each concert season,   Thanks to generous donations from board members, parents, businesses and other community members, the orchestra is the only youth orchestra in the region that does not charge membership fees for students or admission to concerts and offers both merit and needs-based scholarships for private lessons to deserving members. AYS has also been fortunate to receive donations to cover the cost of scholarships to the Illinois Summer Youth Music Camp at the University of Illinois in Urbana.? AYS gives youngsters an added measure of polish to help them along with their music careers. The benefit usually pays off as many of the AYS students go on to study music in college and some are now playing professionally. Many AYS alumni can be found in the Alton Symphony Orchestra and some play in the St. Louis Youth Orchestra. AYS is proud to boast of the many alumni who have gone on to respectable careers in the music field.
