All levels of musicians, from ages 8 to 2, can participate in the SDYS program.

Young orchestras and wind ensembles from the San Diego Youth Symphony and Conservatory (SDYS) perform an exciting range of repertoire in the second Inspiration Series Concert of the season at 4 p.m., Sunday, March 15 at the Joan B. Kroc Theatre, located at 6845 University Avenue in La Mesa.

The Inspiration Series features both winds and strings ensembles: Overture Strings, Overture Winds and Concert Strings. These student musicians are from SDYS’ foundation and intermediate level Balboa Park Programs. The concert will feature works such as Bizet’s “Habanera from Carmen,” Dvorak’s “Symphony No. 8 in g minor” and Mozart’s “Overture to Lucio Silla.”

Each season, SDYS provides the opportunity for its student musicians of all levels to perform as part of a large ensemble in the formal setting of a concert venue, which for some students will be one of their first concert hall performances. This performance is a key element to the young musicians’ experience and development in SDYS’ Balboa Park Programs.

Young musicians interested in joining their ensembles this year should take this opportunity to see the introductory level musicians in action. Families can also visit SDYS’ rehearsals on weekends in Balboa Park which includes all ten of the youth symphony’s ensembles.

Join the youth symphony’s rehearsals on April 25 and 26 for the Open Days and you can sit in one of the orchestras to see how it feels to be a part of SDYS. All levels of musicians are accepted from ages 8 to 25 years with the most advanced students going on to attend some of the nations’ top music schools.
