The Junior Symphony of Vancouver was founded by Timoteus Racz, and we had our Debut Concert on December 4, 1999. Since his untimely passing in 2012, his friend and colleague, Collin Heade, has taken on the role of JSV Conductor to keep the legacy alive.  Please join us as we celebrate music in SW Washington, and please help us to support the future of music in this community by being a participant, attending our concerts, and/or making donations!
