Founded in 1965 by Dr. Wachtang "Botso" Korisheli and staffed by conductors and coaches with extensive experience, the San Luis Obispo Youth Symphony provides an excellent environment for young musicians to develop their skills through symphonic and chamber music training. The Youth Symphony is part of the San Luis Obispo Symphony's extensive Music Education program and it is the only opportunity between Santa Barbara and Monterey for school-age musicians to receive full orchestral training.

Volunteer Requirements

All Youth Symphony families will be required to volunteer a total of three hours each season. Opportunities will be provided by the Youth Symphony Manager and the Parent Committee Chair.  Families may also choose to pay a $100 buy out instead of volunteering, or donate up to $100 in snacks for rehearsals or concerts.
