About MLYS
Skip Navigation Links
The Mother Lode Youth Symphony, now in its season, features youth musicians aged 7 to 19 years, from Calaveras, Amador, and Tuolumne Counties. The MLYS provides these talented musicians an opportunity to play symphonic music under the leadership of a professional music conductor.   The young musicians of the MLYS develop their musicianship with the aid of professional coaches and instrumental experts.   The MLYS also provides our community with several quality symphony concerts each year.
MLYS has performed at the Sonora Bach Festival, Bear Valley Music Festival, Bret Harte Performing Arts Center, Ironstone Vineyards, at the Church of the Nazarene in Sutter Creek and the Sonora Opera Hall.  In addition to providing the local music lovers with concert performances, MLYS has also offered very successful master-classes that have been open for enrollment by members of our symphony, as well as those of the community at large.
We are a non-profit organization, and are dependent upon donations from the community for the bulk of our funding. Because of this we ask you to consider becoming a supporter of the MLYS for our concert season. Thank you for your consideration and we look forward to providing you with another exciting season of music from the Mother Lode Youth Symphony.
