It is our mission to promote the healthy development of area youth into a diverse community by providing a venue for artistic expression and experimentation, and a thorough and free education program in orchestral music. We foster personal growth through the careful nurturing of mental and emotional health, through the guidance, training, and support of educational pursuits, and through promotion of spiritual growth.

We envision a future in which all St. Louis youth, irrespective of race, gender and sexuality, have access to a thorough education in orchestral music and young artists are nourished by a vibrant diverse community which welcomes the daring, honest, and genuine talent among us.




Thank you to all our supporters.  Without the support of our sponsors, our goals would not be possible.
