An Exciting Opportunity for Young Musicians

In September 2001, sixty-seven students auditioned for placement in the newly formed Lynchburg Symphony Youth Orchestra and Junior Strings Ensemble. That number has grown to over ninety students. This devoted group of young musicians typically rehearses once a week from late September through May, performs two major concerts, and participates in various capacities during the school year. We are an allied organization of the Lynchburg Symphony Orchestra.
