The history of the YSO is commendable. When the project of creating this orchestra was decided it faced a rather humble start during the decade of 1880’s. Charles Carpenter was a trading farmer by profession. His talented skills of playing the violin helped in raising the creative standards of the Valley by creating a small based orchestra ensemble that frequently performed in the public music concerts that took place at that time. As decades went by, it effectively pursued some pioneers of music like "Chief" Freimuth along with many other musicians. The orchestra’s immediate precursor known at the Yakima Civic Symphony fruitfully broke the ground for the foundations of YSO.
In 1967, when the Yakima Civic Symphony was closed, a chamber orchestra was built by more than twelve musicians along with Brooke Creswell as the conductor of the orchestra. This band of musicians fervently worked under the patronage of the Yakima Community College and began performing in the College Theater and also in the Davis High School as well as the Capitol Theatre. At the time of the growing years of the orchestra an ensemble of devoted music volunteers pitched in the idea that the chamber orchestra was in need of the support of what an independent as well as a nonprofit company would need. Hence, in the March of 1971, these committed volunteers were integrated as the "Patrons of Music".
In the initial season of 1971-1971, these Patrons of Music displayed the Yakima Symphony Orchestra which was not a chamber company anymore; rather it was a complete symphony orchestra. Two years after the creation of the YSO, the new company started the formation program of its staff members. They retained a manager and hired a music director. Since the audiences of the YSO grew by the year, the orchestra finally decided upon shifting all of its live music concerts to the Perry Tech auditorium that could provide a greater seating capacity for its increasing fans. However, after the incident of the destructing fire and then the renovation of the famous Capitol Theatre the YSO was once more shifted. This time the home performing theatre of the orchestra was The Capitol which is the permanent home of the orchestra company till this day.
This move to The Capitol Theatre of the YSO turned out to be a pivotal one in its history as all the musicians were put on a payroll by the Board of Directors which removed the "volunteer" status from the members of this mesmerizing music ensemble. Ever since then, the orchestra has been seeing success and amazing growth as a professional orchestra company that continuously aims at providing some of the most remarkable live music shows to its growing audiences. The orchestra is known for employing some of the most talented and renowned music artists from not just the Yakima Valley but from all over the Pacific Northwest. So far, the YSO has achieved two ASCAP awards for creative programming and also one for the number of local as well as international live premiers.
