North Sound Youth Symphony is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization. Our board of directors consists entirely of parents of NSYS students. While our rehearsals and concerts take place at Western Washington University’s Performing Arts Center, we are a wholly independent organization.
Tuition accounts for approximately 75% of our operating budget. The remainder is from sponsors and businesses.
