The Youth Committee is the representative voice of the orchestras of NYS.
Its purpose is to listen to the concerns and suggestions of orchestra members and to help make participation in the NYS a more enjoyable and rewarding experience.
The committee meets once a month with a parent advisor who reports back to the Board of Directors as the committee's messenger. Thus, an opportunity for open communication between the orchestras and the Board is provided, and the Board receives information that helps it to run the NYS in a way that will ensure a positive musical experience for all members.
Members of the Youth Committee are elected by the orchestras in October.
