The Mankato Area Youth Symphony Orchestra (MAYSO) is a regional orchestra centered in Mankato, MN. Our mission is to provide quality orchestral experience for talented young musicians and present a quality performance for audiences both in Mankato and outlying communities. The North Star Strings (NSS) is a youth orchestra for our younger students to develop and prepare to become a member of MAYSO.
 
MAYSO & NSS rehearse on Saturday mornings from September to mid-March and offer students a unique opportunity to participate in a youth orchestra that will stretch and grow their musical skills. The two groups present two concerts in the fall and spring. 
 


Concerto Competition audition date set for January 24, 2015.
The concerto competition is open to all current members with at least one-year prior membership in the orchestra. Click here to register for the audition.
