New AYS Blog

Dear AYS community,

I’m very pleased to introduce AYS Amplifies, an ongoing series to amplify influential voices within our community.  Specifically, we aim to share perspectives, ideas, and thoughts from people doing work that impacts AYS and the greater classical music field.  We will share essays and videos, as well as streaming and live events, with the expectation that this effort will evolve over time, as needed, to best reflect and serve our community.

The mission of the American Youth Symphony is to inspire the future of classical music.  Please be part of this exciting endeavor: tell us who is creating the future you want to see for our art form by emailing amplify@aysymphonyorg.dream.press.

I hope to hear from you soon,


Tara Aesquivel, Executive Director
