The New York Youth Symphony’s Musical Theater Composition Program is specially designed to lead students between the ages of 12 to 22 through a range of musical theater songwriting processes. In weekly seminars, students will learn about key songwriting tools, explore the relationship between music and language, discover the power of writer and performer collaborations, and foster an artistic community. They will discover the world of professional musical theater through visits from Broadway producers, directors, choreographers, designer, composers, librettists, actors, and musicians, as well as field trips to see professional productions and concerts. The Musical Theater Composition program is part of the New York Youth Symphony and is made possible by generous grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, New York State Council on the Arts, and the ASCAP Foundation Irving Caesar Fund.
