TitleSC70 Youth Symphony of Kansas City Records Finding Aid
AbstractThe Youth Symphony of Kansas City was organized in April 1958, as an independent civic enterprise. The prospective members had to be recommended by their school music director or private music teacher. The charter states it was to be affiliated with the Kansas City Philharmonic, Missouri Federation of Music Clubs, the American Symphony Orchestra League, and the United States Youth Symphony Federation.

The collection contains a number of different types of material covering the group's beginning and formative years, 1958-1970, including concert programs, newspaper clippings, correspondence, board minutes and budget reports. Other items include brochures, some of the group's publications, press releases, circulars/flyers, membership lists, a historical sketch, notices, photographs, and other types of miscellaneous items. Newspaper clippings provide coverage of the group's trip to Chicago in 1963, to Washington, D.C., and the World's Fair in New York in 1964, and to Barcelona, Spain, in 1969.
