Charlotte Symphony Youth Orchestras

The Charlotte Symphony Youth Orchestras provide professional-level musical training to students of all backgrounds across the region. Both the flagship ensemble, the Charlotte Symphony Youth Orchestra, and the training orchestra, the Charlotte Symphony Youth Philharmonic, rehearse weekly. Members of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra mentor all students through sectional rehearsals. This program teaches both individual instrumental proficiency and community building through active listening. Performance opportunities for these orchestra, now nearly 60 years old, abound both locally and nationally.

All auditions are currently under consideration. New members for both groups will be notified by Wednesday, May 30. Returning members will be notified by Wednesday, June 6.
The deadline to accept is Friday, June 15. All waitlisted students will be notified by Monday, July 2.
