Let’s Make Some Music!
The San Luis Obispo Symphony makes classical music exciting and accessible to everyone. Through the Youth Symphony, students get a chance to play, learn, and experience the joy of music in a setting that promotes discipline and teamwork. The Youth Symphony has five ensembles, so that young musicians at every experience level can take part.
All musicians are encouraged to audition, regardless of financial need, as partial scholarships are available. Students participating in their school music program receive a tuition discount. Families with more than one child in Youth Symphony also receive a discount.
Develop a Lifelong Love of Music!
The San Luis Obispo Symphony Youth Symphony is a launching pad for a musical life! As students increase in skill, they progress through the ensembles and get more opportunities to compete and perform.
Upon graduation, many Youth Symphony musicians are prepared to pursue other academic and professional avenues – including playing in the San Luis Obispo Symphony. Several of our orchestra members are Youth Symphony alum.
