Santa Fe Youth Symphony Association (SFYSA) was founded in 1994 and provides music instruction and performance opportunities in orchestra, mariachi, and jazz.


Additionally, Elementary Strings, the 2010 recipient of the Piñon Award for Excellence in Education, provides stringed-instrument instruction in public and private elementary schools around the city with an instrument provided. As of our 2019-2020 season they are serving 285 kids from over 40 different schools bringing our community together through music. All of our programs are offered on a sliding scale and community support is vital.
