Young People's Symphony Orchestra

Berkeley


Founded in 1935 in Berkeley, CA, Young People%u2019s Symphony Orchestra (YPSO) is the oldest independent youth orchestra in California, and the second oldest in the nation. For 75 years - and counting - YPSO has developed the musical talents and skills of students in the San Francisco Bay Area. Today, many YPSO alumni are internationally distinguished musicians and prominent community members.

Our mission is to guide young musicians to achieve excellence within an orchestral setting. We provide an educational environment that fosters accomplishment, serves as a cultural resource for the community, and builds future audience by instilling a passion for music. We encourage young people to become exemplary musicians, and young musicians to become exemplary people.

Music Director/Conductor David Ramadanoff, in his 22nd season with the orchestra, leads a team of master teachers who provide specialized sectional coaching each week, addressing technical and musical issues unique to their instruments. Student applicants audition for placement into YPSO in May and August for the season, which begins in September. Our 100  members range in age from 12-22, and represent 28 cities and six counties in the San Francisco Bay Area. As a result of YPSO's intensive sectional coaching program and Mr. Ramadanoff's extensive background in orchestra building, the orchestra has grown substantially in quality and size and has gained a reputation throughout and beyond Northern California as an outstanding youth ensemble.

YPSO has performed in prestigious locations including Carnegie Hall, the Dean Lesher Regional Center for the Arts in Walnut Creek, CA, San Francisco%u2019s War Memorial Opera House, the Calvin Simmons Auditorium, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and the International Kiwanis Convention, and has been broadcast live on KGO and KKHI Radio.
