Santa Fe Youth Symphony Association
Our offices are located at:
422 Medico Lane
Santa Fe, NM 87505
Our Mission is to inspire and engage the youth of Northern New Mexico's multicultural communities through excellent music education, the guidance of music professionals, and performance opportunities from small ensemble to full orchestra in Jazz, Mariachi and Orchestra.
The Santa Fe Youth Symphony Association (SFYSA) provides life changing music education opportunities to children in Santa Fe who would not otherwise have access. Program curriculum includes auditioning skills, rehearsal preparation, performance opportunities, sectional coaching, and master classes. Children as young as 6 may begin in our Elementary Strings after-school program (with instrument provided) and can continue through senior year in Mariachi, Strings, or Orchestra. Our stepped programming supports students in attaining excellence as their skills develop over time. SFYSA never turns away a family for lack of ability to pay and offers sliding scale tuition. Some families pay as little as $50 for the entire school year.
