The organization, Metropolitan Youth Orchestra was founded in 1997 by Jim Murray and Paul Cooper under the auspices of the Liberty Symphony Orchestra. After twenty seasons, the organization decided to expand and create the Metropolitan Youth Sinfonia.

The purpose of the Metropolitan Youth Sinfonia is to provide an educational and artistic experience for the String Orchestra. It is to provide advanced young string players an opportunity to explore their musical ability and to grow their musical talent and leadership skills. It’s about having fun while learning about and making great music.
