Note From Our Director

Welcome to the 25th anniversary of your Ypsilanti Symphony Orchestra!  Over the past two and a half decades we’ve grown closer as artists and as a community of musicians and listeners. 

Twenty-five years ago, a group of musicians, some of whom still play with us today, took a chance on a young conductor and a fledgling board of directors and put their stake in the ground to create a new kind of community orchestra;  one that TRULY represented our community and was made up of daytime professionals in other fields who volunteer their time and talents, and love to play orchestral music. I couldn’t be more grateful.
