Financial Assistance

All qualified musicians who are selected to play in one of the three ensembles may participate in the Youth Symphony of Southern Oregon organization regardless of financial circumstances. Partial or full tuition waiver scholarships (excluding any annual fee for retreats/extended rehearsals, the $25 Concerto Competition fee for participants and an annual $25 tuition/regsitration fee all musicians pay) are available to current YSSO musicians upon submission and approval of a Tuition Assistance request. Each year, the YSSO organization seeks support from foundations, individuals and other funding sources to help underwrite financial assistance for current YSSO musicians.

Please contact the YSSO organization office ( or 541-858-8859) for information or to request a copy of the Tuition Assistance form.
