Youth Day Master Classes




The Yavapai Symphony Association presents annual Youth Day – Master Classes to area students.

Musicians of the Phoenix Symphony Orchestra participate in musical instrument master classes at the local high schools and middle schools in the Prescott area.

This year’s instructions on April 18, 2016 included presentations in the violin, bass, viola, cello, oboe, trumpet, french horn, trombone, tuba, clarinet, saxophone, percussion, and flute.  This event was partially funded by a FY2015 Acker grant.
