Young Musicians Foundation Programs

Chamber Music SeriesThroughout our almost 60-year history, YMF has continuously evolved our programs and focus in order to have a greater impact on young musicians. Our innovative service model is built on interconnected programs that allow for long-term involvement, meeting musicians’ changing needs over many years.

YMF’s activities include eight programs:

Debut Orchestra
The Debut Orchestra is the second-oldest pre-professional training orchestra in the country, comprised of Los Angeles’ most talented 15 to 25-year-old musicians.

The 2014-2015 season marks the Debut Orchestra's 60th anniversary. Stay tuned for commemorative events and more exciting programming!

Music 360 Program
Through the Music 360° program, the Debut Orchestra performs at least two concerts each season in venues to create greater access to classical music for diverse communities in Los Angeles County.

Music Director and Conductor-in-Residence Post
The Debut Orchestra Music Director and Conductor-in-Residence post is a three-year position and one of the most prestigious training positions available to young conductors.

Teaching Artist Program
The Teaching Artist Program offers at-risk students the opportunity to learn in a beneficial, caring relationship that strengthens individual resiliency and the capacity for lifelong learning.

Chamber Music Series
The Chamber Music Series gives young musicians ages 11-18 the opportunity to study and perform unadapted chamber repertoire as part of a gifted and motivated ensemble, coached by expert professional musicians.

Debut Concerto Competition
The Debut Concerto Competition awards musicians through age 25 solo performance opportunities with the Debut Orchestra in the upcoming season, along with honoraria to further their studies.

David Weiss Scholarship Program
The David Weiss Scholarship Program offers financial assistance to young musicians ages 8 through 25 to continue private music instruction, including private music instruction, music camp/school tuition or festival attendance.

Artistic Management Training Program
The Artistic Management Training Program provides on-the-job training that encompasses all facets of YMF’s arts education, performance programming, and community outreach activities.
