Welcome to the Chesapeake Youth Symphony Orchestra
The CYSO provides young musicians with comprehensive musical and orchestral training for elementary through college-age students. Under the leadership of professional conductors, the CYSO's stimulating musical environment develops excellent performers through weekly rehearsals, outstanding coaching, sectionals, workshops, competitions, and optional national and international tours. Since its inception, the CYSO has grown to include diverse ensembles for a variety of instruments. Thousands of young people have participated in the CYSO's exciting programs, and many alumni have successful careers as musicians, while others have cultivated a life-long love of music! We invite you to learn more about the CYSO and how our members grow through music.
