A premier music theater training and performance organization, YAA trains high school and middle school students to perform fully orchestrated works at state-of-the-art venues, including its home stage at the Music Center at Strathmore. But what makes the program truly unique is its mentorship component: students receive individualized instruction from major performing artists and teachers in leading university programs. Each year, more than 350 students from 80 regional schools receive 150 hours of training (plus another 100 hours at a summer performing arts intensive program) in vocal and orchestral performance, dance, and acting. Over $20,000 in scholarships is available for talented students in need of tuition assistance. Outstanding performances – including musical theater productions, community concerts, and master classes – are offered at low or no cost to more than 3,000 audience members each year. Your support nurtures young artists, preparing them to take the stage today … and for years to come.
