Parents' Guild

Community Parents Guild

Dear NYYS Parents and Guardians, 

Participation in the New York Youth Symphony is a tremendous feat, requiring great discipline, dedication, and commitment. Parent engagement and support also play a key role in the growth and success of our children at NYYS and for this reason, we’ve established the Parents’ Guild. 

Parents and guardians are automatically considered part of the Parents’ Guild as their children are accepted into the NYYS programs. However, we ask parents to join the Guild by registering and paying yearly dues. The annual Family membership is $50.00/family. These dues offset some of the catering costs at student events and performances throughout the year. In the past the Parents’ Guild fund has provided food at chamber ensembles, jazz intensives, chamber music assessments, community concerts, and Composition Date concert events.  

The Parents’ Guild also plays a coordinating role helping to chaperone the Kick-Off Weekend, hosting information sessions or potluck meals. Members also serve as ambassadors of NYYS in our communities, act as liaisons for new parents within the organization and provide a parent’s perspective to NYYS staff and trustees.  

To join the NYYS Parents’ Guild, please follow this link: 

I invite all of you to join the NYYS Parents’ Guild and welcome your suggestions and ideas. Please reach out to me via for any more information. Together we can create a dynamic and supportive parent community at NYYS.  

Thank you for your support!
