What We Do
The Carolina Youth Symphony (CYS) mission is to encourage artistic excellence in a nurturing environment by providing the highest quality orchestral training and performance opportunities to young musicians, and makes participate possible to many through financial aid and work programs. CYS offers a continuum of orchestral and ensemble training and performance opportunities to hundreds of students through high school, with three full orchestras.
CYS prides itself on creating a community for young musicians, their families and the people that support their passion for music. Read more about our mission here.
