dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to identify pieces by Twentieth-Century Latin-American composers suitable for performance by Youth Orchestras in the United States. Scores available at the Indiana University Latin-American Music Center were primarily used. This allowed a more comprehensive search while limiting the scope of the study. Orchestral pieces were selected and examined for the study in order to provide insight into particulars of their individual styles and offer them together with pertinent information on the various composers. The study identified five Latin-American composers who have written pieces suitable for performance by youth orchestras. The advantages of including Latin-American music in the repertoire of youth orchestras was demonstrated. Social, cultural and political as well as musical reasons for this inclusion were stated. Characteristics of the music of those countries that make it very attractive to young players were taken into consideration in the study, as well as the influence that hispanic traditions have exerted upon the culture of the United States for more than two centuries.It was demonstrated that this cultural interaction, stronger in certain regions of the country, offers added justification for the inclusion of Latin-American repertoire. The analysis of the works selected demonstrated the availability of works of quality that are suitable for performance by youth orchestras, even though they may not have been originally conceived with that in mind.
