The Benefit is the organization's largest and most important fundraising event of the year. Funds raised support the NYYS’s innovative educational programs, which educate and inspire young musicians through exceptional training and performance opportunities. More than 7,000 students have participated in the orchestra, jazz, chamber music, composition, musical theater songwriting, and conducting programs since the founding of the NYYS in 1963. Thank you for your support!

Musical Theater Songwriting Album Release Party
The NYYS Musical Theater Songwriters are releasing an album of all original works! Inspired by Pixar’s feature film Inside Out, the costumes of Broadway designer Sarah Laux, and more, the featured songs are just the kind of bops and ballads you need to hum and dance your way through quarantine.

The album drops on Monday, May 18th at midnight.

THEN, on Tuesday, May 19th from 6:30-8:00 pm join us for an live exclusive with Anna K. Jacobs, Director, and the young songwriters of the program!

This is a free virtual event to celebrate the end of the Musical Theater Songwriting program's season. We are so proud of our students and how hard they have worked throughout the year, and even throughout this pandemic. The staff and guest speakers have done a tremendous job moving to virtual learning platforms and we hope you will join us in saluting them all!
