The Space Coast Symphony Youth Orchestra is a creative environment where pre-college age musicians, ages 8-18, from every imaginable social, cultural, and economic background across Brevard and Indian River Counties come together to rehearse and perform classical symphonic masterworks and more.
To accommodate different playing levels, SCSYO includes an Academy Orchestra for beginning players, Symphonic Orchestra for intermediate players, and the Philharmonic Orchestra for advanced players. The Symphonic Orchestra performs quality arrangements of classical and contemporary music, whereas the Philharmonic Orchestra performs standard and contemporary repertoire much like professional orchestras. Rehearsals for all three groups include coaching sessions. The orchestras are led by a talented artistic staff that create a learning experience for the young musician that is unparalleled in our community.
Rehearsals require serious commitment, but the benefits are considerable. Students dramatically improve their playing level, learn orchestra masterworks, and will have the opportunity to perform side-by-side with the Space Coast Symphony Orchestra. The SCSYO ultimately seeks to develop a passion for music that lasts a lifetime by building a community that will be the future of culture. This community uses music to build strong friendships with like-minded students across Central Florida.
