Our 60th anniversary season will feature five debuts, four encore performances, and eight world premieres in an artistically rich and dynamic year of new beginnings. We will present the first saxophonist to join the YCA roster in its 60-year history, and new compositions written by six YCA composers. A celebratory Gala Evening will conclude the season, bringing together many extraordinary artists, from YCA’s past and present for a special tribute to our Guest of Honor, YCA Founder, Susan Wadsworth.
Our young musicians are passionate about sharing extraordinary music. We look forward to sharing our celebratory Sixtieth Season with you!
