The Tucson Symphony Young Composers Project provides professional composition instruction to students ages 8–18. In its 27th year, this unique program gives young talented students rare access to world-class conductors, composers, and professional musicians. Since its launch in 1993, over 400 pieces by young composers have been created, performed and recorded.

Every year the TSO invests up to $600,000 into education programs, including the Young Composers Project. This cannot be done without massive community support. When you donate to our Symphony of Support campaign, know that you are supporting this investment in over 35,000 students and teachers.
