Our Impact

Since 1958, the Greater Miami Youth Symphony (GMYS) has been a cornerstone of Miami’s thriving arts and culture scene. Over the years, the orchestra has seen and survived rough times – from recessions to the pandemic, we’ve remained strong because our community has surrounded us.

Our mission is to instill life-long values of discipline, teamwork, responsibility, respect, and cultural appreciation in young musicians while enriching the cultural foundation of our community by reaching out to and recruiting young musicians from different cultural, ethnic, and economic backgrounds.

We understand how important it is to keep the music playing and the difference it makes in the lives of the many students we serve.
