Watch this free live-stream event and support the talented young musicians of the Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra!
A highlight of the FSYO Concert Season, the Concerto Competition encourages students to step out of their roles within the orchestra, and into a soloist’s seat. Students compete for a chance to play their solo accompanied by FSYO’s Symphonic Orchestra, under the direction of Music Director, Maestro Hanrich Claassen.
The Florida Symphony Youth Orchestras exists to encourage children and young adults, through the practice and performance of orchestral music, to become passionate leaders, thinkers, and contributors in their local community and beyond. In its 63rd Concert Season, FSYO serves over 300 students and is comprised of seven ensembles – three symphony orchestras, one string-training orchestra, a chamber orchestra, and two jazz orchestras – and two supplementary programs – Stringmania Summer Camp and Sing-Song, String-Along.
