LSYO – Orchestra Opportunities for Young People

The LaGrange Symphony Youth Orchestra provides rich training and performance opportunities for high-school aged musicians, while the LSYO String Ensemble and Piccolo String Ensemble serve children 5 to 13 years of age. Aspiring young musicians can pursue their musical dreams with weekly rehearsals, weekly wind sectional rehearsals and monthly string sectional rehearsals.

Directed by professional musicians, provide these young musicians with the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of performing in a symphonic group. Their progress and achievements are showcased at concerts held each fall and spring. Other performance opportunities are provided for small ensembles throughout the year.

Spring 2018 Side-by-Side event gets rave reviews with “Embrace LIFE” concert!


Read the full review from the “Embrace LIFE” concert HERE.  The LSO is very proud of our Youth Orchestra and is honored to be able to provide performance opportunities for our young musicians.  The Side-by-Side is an annual event, usually the first piece of our regular season March concert, where youth orchestra members get mentoring and performance experience.  They play professional level music sitting side-by-side our seasoned musicians.  This has proven to be very valuable for their music education.

There are also numerous photos from this concert on the review page in the link above.

LSYO Spring Concert – Very Impressive!

Tuesday March 27, 2018 marked the LSYO Spring Concert Event!


Playing were:

LaGrange Symphony Youth Orchestra!

LaGrange Youth String Ensemble!

Strings Attached Musicians!

NEW* String Sprouts!


Beginning with a full stage and a combined ensemble to play Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture, the concert progressed through individual performances of the separate groups.  All were very impressive and conveyed the work these kids have put into learning their instruments and the numerous pieces of music included in the program.  Culminating with the LSYO playing Antonin Dvorak’s Slavonic Dance in G minor, the entire concert was a huge success.

Thank you to all the families and friends who filled the auditorium and have supported the efforts of these kids.  Also many thanks to their teachers.  The LSO String Project instructors include: Callie Hammond, Celeste Myall, Sam Lee, Katie Truex, Marcia Taber, Ela Tokarska, and Ina Petkova-Apostolova.
