Young People’s Symphony Orchestra (YPSO) is the oldest youth orchestra in California and the second oldest in the nation.  Founded in 1936, it has inspired and educated generations of musicians and tens of thousands of audience members.

YPSO provides an unsurpassed orchestral training program for committed musicians between the ages of 12 and 18.  Under the guidance of conductor and Music Director David Ramadanoff, currently celebrating his 28th season with the orchestra in the 2016-17 season, 101 young musicians expand their musical experience through rehearsal and performances of a wide range of symphonic repertoire.  Members come from throughout the Bay Area: 50% from Alameda County, 33% from Contra Costa County,  8% from San Francisco, 5% from Marin County, 2% from Napa, and 1% from San Mateo, Sonoma, and Stanislaus counties.

400-600 people will see your ad in our program books at each concert set.
