Corvallis Youth Symphony Association (CYSA) provides music education in the mid-Willamette Valley to approximately 300 young musicians, starting with Elementary Strings (ES) classes in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades, continuing with the Willamette Valley Junior Honors Symphony (JHS) to the full symphonic orchestra that is Corvallis Youth Symphony (CYS).

We really need your support to keep this quality music program in our community.

Here is how your tax-deductible gift can help.

  • $100 pays for one coaching session for the CYS brass section.
  • $420 underwrites tuition and fees for one Elementary Strings student.
  • $2000 covers the cost of renting LaSells Stewart Center for one concert.

CYSA is a non-profit organization. Your tax-deductible gift will be acknowledged in our concert publications. Thanks for playing an important part in this program.
