Welcome to Milwaukee Youth Symphony Orchestra’s (MYSO’s) 65th season! I am grateful for the opportunity to lead you this fall when we return to rehearsals as three smaller orchestras. This adjustment will allow us to physically distance while playing music not often performed by MYSO’s orchestras. For the time being, to create the room we need at MYAC, we need to make changes to our typical Monday evening schedules.
This fall, I am excited to work alongside my friends and colleagues, Margery Deutsch, Music Director Laureate, and Frank Almond, Artist-in-Residence, who will help lead the orchestras.
To get started:
Thank you for being a part of this incredible orchestra and MYSO. Best wishes to you as you prepare for another excellent season.
Mr. Simmons, Music Director
