GRYPA was formed in May 2015 in an effort to support and grow youth performance ensembles in the greater Grand Rapids area.  With member groups representing each branch of the collective WGI "marching arts", GRYPA is focused on using its centralized resources to find the most effective organizational and educational practices for continued success of all participating ensembles.  The Grand Rapids Youth Performing Arts  is a 501c3 non-profit organization.  

GRYPA would like to thank the following school districts for their support in our organization

Sparta Schools

Godwin Heights Schools

Grandville Schools

Cedar Springs Schools

Kent City Schools
