The primary purpose of the Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra is education. All programs reflect a commitment to provide young musicians with the opportunity to strengthen their musical talents and develop an appreciation of the arts through classical music.
Members develop discipline, teamwork and leadership skills through rehearsal and performance with peers who are serious about music.
Many members go on to become professional musicians, music teachers, doctors, engineers, and other professions. All leave FSYO with a love and appreciation of music that will enrich the rest of their adult lives.
