Part of the Minnesota Orchestra since 1911

The Young People's Symphony Concert Association (YPSCA) was created in support of the Minnesota Orchestra Young People's Concerts in 1911. YPSCA's mission is to instill in young people an appreciation of music and to encourage their continuing interest in the Minnesota Orchestra. YPSCA was formed to assist, augment and promote the Young People's Concerts and YPSCA is still going strong.
