The San Jose Youth Symphony (SJYS) is located in San Jose, California, and is one of the oldest and finest youth orchestras in the West Coast of the United States. Founded six decades ago as part of the former San Jose Symphony, SJYS has a rich tradition of musical performance and education.
SJYS was founded six decades ago in 1951 as part of the former San Jose Symphony and operated under the San Jose Symphony’s management until 2001, when the San Jose Symphony ceased operation. To preserve and continue the unique ability of SJYS to provide the musical education needs of children in San Jose and neighboring communities, the parents of SJYS member musicians mobilized to form a Board of Directors and incorporate SJYS as an independent, non-profit organization. Not-for-profit 501(c)(3) status was granted in 2002.
